System-wide Implementation Strategy on PSEA - Endorsed

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 large presence of peacekeepers and aid workers heighten the exposure to sexual exploitation and abuse (SEA). Yet, the Secretary General remains instructive to all involved in the delivery of peace and aid to the vulnerable population in need; "to protect the weak and those in need and uphold the dignity of every human being under our care."

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.
