SEA Referral Pathways (2017)

As in any country affected by emergencies, Sexual Exploitation and Abuse (SEA) by humanitarian workers may occur, particularly when humanitarian staff have direct contact with beneficiaries. The Secretary General’s Bulletin (SGB) issued on 9 October 2003 (ST/ SGB/2003/13), which outlines measures regarding protection from SEA, is binding for all UN personnel.

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.
