The Sphere Handbook is marking its 20th anniversary with the publication of its fourth edition. It is the result of an intense year-long mobilization of humanitarian actors around the globe and reflects two decades of experience using the standards in front-line operations, policy development and advocacy to uphold principled quality and accountability.
