The CHS Guidance Notes and Indicators launches in Khmer
The Core Humanitarian Standard (CHS) Guidance Notes and Indicators is now available in Khmer language. The CHS management team would like to thank the members of Humanitarian Accountability Network (HANet) in Cambodia for translating the document. The CHS Guidance Notes and Indicators in Khmer will be an invaluable resource for humanitarian and development organisations working in Cambodia, such as local NGOs, INGOs, UN, Cambodian Red Cross and Government.
The CHS Guidance Notes and Indicators is now available in seven languages on the Resources page of CHS website: Arabic, English, French, Japanese, Khmer, Korean and Spanish.
The CHS management team also encourages interested individuals and organisations to translate the CHS Guidance Notes and Indicators into other languages. This helps disseminate the document more widely and supports the efforts of humanitarian and development actors to improve the quality and effectiveness of their responses. Those wishing to do so should first email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and approval from the CHS communications team.
The Humanitarian Accountability Network in Cambodia “HANet” was initiated in March 2003 after a field trial of the Humanitarian Accountability Partnership (HAP). There are seven organisations represented in the committee: four international organisation (CARE Cambodia, Concern, Oxfam in Cambodia and WVI-Cambodia), two local organisations (Urban Sector Group “USG” and Nak Akphivath Sahakum “NAS”) and the Cambodian Red Cross “CRC”.
Oxfam was hosing HANet in the early stage until the end of April 2007, then Care Cambodia took over from May 2007 to June 2011. Currently World Vision International-Cambodia is the chair of HANet from 1 July 2011.
