IASC Vision and Strategy: Protection from sexual exploitation and abuse and sexual harassment (PSEAH) 2022−2026

This Strategy replaces the 2021 IASC Championship PSEAH Strategy and is informed by the findings of the 2021 IASC external PSEAH Review. This 2022-2026 Strategy is coherent with the strategic outcomes and commitments made in the 2018 and 2021 IASC PSEAH Strategy and the IASC PSEAH Acceleration Plan, and includes time bound targets. 


The Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) supports a vision of a humanitarian environment in which people caught up in crises feel safe, respected, and can access needed protection and assistance without fear of sexual exploitation or abuse (SEA) by any aid worker and in which aid workers themselves feel supported, respected and empowered to deliver assistance free from sexual harassment.

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.
