Construction Good Practice Standards

The Construction Good Practice Standards (CGPS) sets out common standards for the responsible delivery of construction projects in humanitarian settings. As such, it represents the action across all sectors to be accountable in ensuring the safety, timeliness and quality of the construction projects for which the agencies are responsible. Construction is an essential part of a wide range of development and humanitarian programming.

The main goal of these standards is to influence a greater commitment to eliminating the false economies, poor design and construction practices, shortcuts and lack of oversight that limit public safety and decrease the sustainability and resilience of humanitarian delivered construction projects.
