In Honduras, the Sphere working group launched the Spanish edition of the 2004 Sphere handbook. More than 50 people attended the event, including donors, NGOs and government officials. The group also held both a national and a regional consultation on the future of Sphere. In El Salvador, the Sphere working group was invited by the government agency in charge of disaster response to present Sphere in the legislative commissions of the National Assembly. In April the group held a consultation meeting on the future of Sphere.
