The Sphere General Assembly approved a new membership structure and lower membership fees in April 2021 for immediate implementation. These changes are now reflected in the information below.
Sphere members believe that people affected by crises must be at the centre of decisions about humanitarian protection, assistance, recovery and resilience.
We recognise that people affected by disaster and conflict have the right to life with dignity, the right to receive humanitarian assistance, and the right to protection and security. By joining our community, you make a commitment to uphold the rights and dignity of all people affected by crisis.
Sphere is the most established and recognised organisation in the field of humanitarian quality and accountability. Sphere standards and resources are open source, accessible and free to everyone – and will always remain so. We believe that ownership of the standards is with the humanitarian community, which contributes to their development through their expertise.
Join us to play an active role in the future of Sphere and make a real difference in the sector!
