The content focuses on safeguarding prevention, risk mitigation, reporting, proactive detection of violations and response to allegations. This report has been prepared by World Vision for practitioners, peers, and donors, with language that can be applicable to most emergency responses or programming in fragile contexts.

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.
