System wide Implementation Strategy on PSEA

Sexual Exploitation and Abuse (SEA) is a key concern in South Sudan. The context of conflict, economic hardship, food insecurity and limited access to basic social services, along with the poor living conditions of the local population, combine to increase the vulnerability to gender-based violence and survival sex. This, with the existence of Protection of Civilians (POC) sites and large presence of peacekeepers and aid workers heighten the exposure to SEA. Community members are not adequately sensitized and mobilized to prevent SEA. The majority of the population is not aware of where and how to make SEA complaints and what the results might be. Amongst staff, personnel and contractors working for peacekeeping and humanitarian aid delivery, there is a low level on knowledge of standards of conduct, policies and procedures on PSEA.

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.
