Ukraine NGO Forum became focal point for the Sphere Project in Ukraine

On the 19th of July, Ukraine NGO Forum became the Sphere Project focal point in Ukraine and will aim to further improve the quality of humanitarian assistance and the accountability of humanitarian actors to their constituents, donors and affected populations.

The Sphere handbook is the most widely known and recognized set of common principles and universal minimum standards for humanitarian response in the world.

As a Sphere Project focal point, Ukraine NGO Forum will, for example, promote the use of the Sphere Handbook within humanitarian organizations, conduct training on Sphere Handbook and materials, and host field consultations.

To further encourage coordinated Sphere activities Ukraine NGO Forum will conduct a Training of Trainers in October 2016. Please find more information here.

The role of the country focal point is a voluntary one. Ukraine NGO Forum receives no financial contribution from the Sphere Project office.
