UN Protocol on Allegations of Sexual Exploitation and Abuse involving Implementing Partners

The UN Protocol on Allegations of SEA involving Implementing Partners outlines requirements of the United Nations, including its funds and programmes (collectively, the “UN”), when working with implementing partners, to ensure adequate safeguards and appropriate action related to sexual exploitation and abuse (SEA). The Protocol was developed under the auspices of the UN SEA Working Group, as part of its work to strengthen a UN system-wide approach to prevention and response to SEA, with contributions from members of the IASC AAP/PSEA Task Team.
