Humanitarian Standards Partnership

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.
