As Sphere Focal Point for China, CCOUC was represented by Mr Chi Shing Wong and Mr Zhe Huang at the Sphere Global Focal Points Meeting via Zoom on 26 May 2020.
The biennial international event was attended by some 30 participants from around the world. The Sphere Headquarters team at Geneva has reviewed the recent development of Sphere standards and Sphere Focal Points, particularly in priority countries with medium to very high severity in humanitarian needs. It also highlighted the publications of 2018 Sphere Handbook in various languages, including the Chinese edition that CCOUC had participated in its translation. Localisation of Sphere standards in various countries and putting together various stakeholders in the same Sphere standards training sessions were two foci of discussion.
