Learning Event 2018

Learning Event to explore CHS as driver of change

On Friday, 30th November we will gather key representatives of our member organisations in London, in partnership with Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC), to explore the potential of the Core Humanitarian Standard on Quality and Accountability as a driver of change.

The event is based on group learning, enabling participants to share examples of good practice, experiences and insights with one another. Based on the experience of the organisations which have verified the degree to which they effectively apply the Standard, as well as the information we have collected in the process, we will more specifically look at:

  • What we have learned through the verification process, including in some of the most challenging areas, such as the Protection from Sexual Exploitation and Abuse (PSEA), complaints handling and feedback mechanisms (including in the most challenging areas of protection against sexual exploitation and abuse (PSEA), complaints response mechanisms and the participation of crisis-affected people and communities in the humanitarian response. in the humanitarian response);
  • How we leverage this learning to change and, ultimately, improve our service to crisis-affected people and communities; 
  • How the CHS Alliance can support its members and the wider sector to effectively apply the CHS, with a special focus on those areas where we are particularly struggling to meet our commitments.

The hashtag of the event is #CHSLearning2018.
