18 SOME Tools for HD  Sphere Charter  RC/RC and NGO Code of Conduct for Disaster Relief  P&V based checklist for Disaster Managers and Health Professionals  Code of Good Practice for NGOs responding to HIV/AIDs  Principles and Rules for RCRC Disaster Relief  The Hyogo Framework offers guiding principles, priorities for action, and practical means for achieving disaster resilience for vulnerable communities.  Inter-Agency Standing Committee’s (IASC) Guidelines for Protecting Persons Affected by Natural Disasters:  Guiding Principles on Internal Displacement
