The learning objective is that learners fully understand the difference between standards and targets. This is critically important for all users of Humanitarian Standards Partnership (HSP) handbooks but is often not well understood. This resource is available in English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Bahasa Indonesia and Arabic, but the activity can be run in any language because the main content is a set of 12 cartoons which contain no writing.
