The SEADS Evidence Database contains the main documents we used to develop the SEADS minimum standards. Learn more about our evidence-based approach.
We regularly review and categorize documents and add them to the database. If you have evaluations or impact assessments that you would like SEADS to review, please contact the SEADS Coordinator.

The Sphere Handbook sets out global minimum standards for humanitarian actions. Sphere acts as the foundation for other humanitarian standards initiatives, including SEADS, which together comprise the Humanitarian Standards Partnership (HSP).
The HSP aims to improve the quality and accountability of humanitarian action across different sectors and to support users to develop harmonized approaches in the application of standards. The HSP organizes joint training opportunities, research initiatives, and outreach activities. It also runs advocacy activities calling for an increased application of humanitarian standards.
