Groupe URD launches a consultation on the CHS Compas

The CHS Compas has been developed by Groupe URD based on its 20 years’ experience in Q&A and its strong implication in the development of the CHS. In the past few weeks, a draft version of the CHS Compas has been presented for feedback to the IASC (Geneva) and ALNAP (in Stockholm, during its annual network meeting).
