Collective Action at Country Level

The PSEA leadership role of the Humanitarian Coordinator as made explicit in the statement. The HC has system-wide responsibility for developing collective PSEA strategies and ensuring that action plans are implemented.

See below generic TORs (ENG, ARA, FR, SPA) for PSEA Network, PESA Focal Point and PSEA Coordinator for use by HCs and HCTs. These have been developed by IOM and endorsed by the IASC  to support the development of PSEA Network, designation of PSEA Focal Point, and recruitment of PSEA Coordinators by building a capacitated talent pool and harmonizing the role.


Sexual exploitation and abuse represents a catastrophic failure of protection. It brings harm to those whom we are mandated to protect.

The Inter-Agency Standing Committee is working to scale up protection from sexual exploitation and abuse across humanitarian response efforts. This website and global dashboard has been developed and managed through the support of UNICEF. It is dedicated to providing technical support and resources to practitioners, and to tracking inter-agency, collective progress across countries with a humanitarian response.
