The Core Humanitarian Standard on Quality and Accountability (CHS) was updated over a two-year process 2022-2024 to ensure the commitments made to people affected by crisis and experiencing vulnerability are relevant and more accessible to a wider range of aid organisations.   

The result of this process was a strengthened CHS (2024 edition) which was globally launched on 21 March 2024 in Geneva and online. The CHS custodians – CHS Alliance, Groupe URD and Sphere – are grateful to organisations and individuals who are volunteering to host a 2024 CHS Country Launch event in your country/region. 

See below for the list of events taking place and the organisers. This is not exhaustive and will be updated on a regular basis.  

If you have any questions about these events or want to volunteer to host a CHS Launch event in your country, please contact chs@chsalliance.org.
