The course will be beneficial to anyone involved in humanitarian response: from people new to Sphere principles and standards to experienced humanitarian workers who already work with them but may appreciate tips on how to use them better.
Among the key aspects of humanitarian work explored by the course are: accountability to affected populations, needs assessments, response coordination, impartiality and non-discrimination, keeping populations safe from harm, "building back safer" and looking after oneself as a humanitarian worker.
In this webinar Verónica Foubert, responsible for Training and Learning Management at the Sphere Project office, offers an overview of the new Sphere e-learning course.
