CHS Alliance and SoS Sahel Ethiopia are pleased to invite you to the online workshop on “Bringing the CHS closer to People Affected by Crisis in Ethiopia” on 18 November 2021 11.00 – 12.30  Ethiopia local time

In the past few years, interest in the Core Humanitarian Standard on Quality and Accountability (CHS) and verification has significantly grown and today the Standard is widely recognised as a measurable framework that sets out the essential elements for principled humanitarian action.

However, to reach the standard we have set for ourselves, the CHS needs to be widely owned, applied and supported by national and local actors – those who are closest to the people and communities affected by crises – as well as international actors.

CHS Alliance, together with its members and partners are reinforcing efforts to make sure the CHS is applied as closely as possible to people and communities affected by crisis. As part of this effort, this workshop aims to generate learning with NNGOs in Ethiopia on how to increase their engagement with the CHS and the CHS Alliance. We will discuss the importance of Quality and Accountability in Ethiopia context, share experience of application of the CHS and explore opportunities and challenges of applying the CHS in Ethiopia.

As a representative of an actor in Ethiopia working to serve people and communities, and committed to quality and accountability, you are invited to take part of this a 90 minute interactive workshop and share your knowledge and insights with us on how to make sure the CHS is applied as closely as possible to people and communities affected by crisis in Ethiopia.
