Prevention of Sexual Exploitation and Abuse should be a top priority for all humanitarian organizations and agencies. Sexual Exploitation and Abuse of beneficiaries by humanitarian workers is a serious violation of human rights and a protection failure. Humanitarian workers are obligated to uphold the highest standards of personal and professional conduct and dignity always to protect beneficiaries of assistance. It brings harm to those whom the UN and humanitarian agencies are mandated to protect and jeopardizes the reputation of these agencies and their ability to provide protection.

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.
