This 75 minute webinar provides an overview of the SEADS Project, describes why the humanitarian and agriculture sectors need standards, discusses how we are developing the SEADS Standards, and reviews how people can be involved in the early stages and in the future. It features: Adam Riddell, SEADS Steering Group; Isaac Jebaseelan, SEADS Field Team; and Racey Henderson, SEADS Coordinator.
Gregory Gottlieb, director of the Feinstein International Center
at Tufts University, describes why SEADS is important.
Adam Riddell, Director of Emergency Funding at World Vision, visits BidiBidi Refugee Settlement in Uganda and discusses how SEADS will help inform programming for people there and in other refugee situations.
The SEADS Project is using a process similar to that of The Sphere Handbook: Humanitarian Charter and Minimum Standards in Humanitarian Response (2018) and the Livestock Emergency Guidelines and Standards (LEGS). It will complement the Humanitarian Standards Partnership (HSP) to ensure crucial links between protecting and rebuilding agricultural assets and other areas of humanitarian response. The Humanitarian Standards Partnership is a collaboration between the world’s leading standards setting initiatives which aims to improve the quality and accountability of humanitarian action through the increased application of humanitarian standards. SEADS will seek membership in the HSP when the standards are completed.
