The Sphere Handbook 2018

The Sphere Handbook is the oldest initiative in the field of humanitarian standards. It has been field-tested over twenty years and  regularly updated to ensure it remains fit for purpose in a changing world. What does not change is its rights-based foundations: people have the right to assistance, the right to life with dignity, the right to protection and security, and the right to fully participate in decisions related to their own recovery.

The Sphere Handbook 2018 was launched on 6 November 2018. This launch also marked the 20th anniversary of the Sphere movement, established originally as a time-limited project which has grown into a community of purpose spanning the globe.

As of 2020, the interactive Handbook allows you to post links to newly published resources, share your case studies and success stories or simply alert us to inaccuracies in the text. All this shared content will be stored to inform the next edition.
