Call for Expressions of Interest to Develop a Smartphone App
The Global Humanitarian Standards Partnership will develop a smartphone application in order to increase aid workers' access and use of humanitarian standards, particularly in field operations where internet and data connectivity are unreliable or missing.
This is a call for expressions of interest to develop the app either on a pro-bono basis or pending a joint mobilisation of funds. Download this document for further details. Deadline for submissions: 30 June 2016.
The Global Humanitarian Standards Partnership is a collaboration between the Sphere Project and its Companion Standards.
They complement each other and provide evidence-based standards in nine crucial areas of humanitarian response: water and sanitation, shelter, food security and nutrition, health (Sphere Handbook); education (INEE); child protection (CPMS); economic recovery (MERS); livestock (LEGS); and market analysis (CaLP).
The Partnership aims to improve the quality and accountability of humanitarian action through the increased application of a coherent corpus of humanitarian standards.
