The Sphere Handbook is the oldest initiative in the field of humanitarian standards. It has been field-tested over twenty years and regularly updated to ensure it remains fit for purpose in a changing world. What does not change is its rights-based foundations: people have the right to assistance, the right to life with dignity, the right to protection and security, and the right to fully participate in decisions related to their own recovery.

It is a comprehensive resource and guidance on what to teach and how to teach gender in the military and should ultimately serve as a support to the military teaching community, cultivate a network of experts and enhance further collabortaion between NATO and Partner Nations.
