IASC PSEA Mapping Exercise

Global Dashboard

The Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) mapping exercise tracks collective progress on accelerating protection from sexual exploitation and abuse (PSEA) among all countries with a humanitarian response plan or equivalent. It is based on IASC commitments and priority areas and is conducted annually by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), on behalf of the IASC. Since 2019, more than 40 countries have participated in annual surveys that collect data for the IASC PSEA Dashboard. From 2022, the mapping exercise is based on the revised IASC PSEA Core Indicators, a selection of the most relevant measures that are to be tracked over time. 

The main objective of the mapping exercise is to report against PSEA Core Indicators as defined in the United Nations Country Team (UNCT)/ Humanitarian Country Team (HCT) Action Plan Template. 

All countries with humanitarian response operations are requested to participate in the 2023 PSEA mapping exercise. Humanitarian Coordinators should oversee the exercise with technical leadership from the PSEA Coordinator or designated focal point. The exercise should be conducted in consultation and agreement with PSEA Network/PSEA Task Force members. Where there is no inter-agency structure available, HCT/UNCT focal points should complete the exercise. 

Submission of responses  

The reporting period for 2023 mapping exercise covers 1 January to 31 December 2023. UNICEF will compile responses from countries and process the data at the global level and analytics on the IASC PSEA Dashboard will be updated with the 2023 data. 

Respondents need to input their responses in the 2023 Mapping Response Collection Tool. The tool is an Excel file that facilitates the collection and aggregation of quantitative and qualitative data. 

The Mapping Response Collection Tool should be submitted by 21 June 2024 to:

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.
