Raising community-awareness on the risks of sexual exploitation and abuse (SEA) committed by aid workers and available reporting channels is critical to preventing of SEA, as well as to ensuring that victims know where and how to safely report SEA when it does take place. Due to the existence of gaps in communication and outreach as well as in appropriate rights-based messaging, local stakeholders have underlined the need for effective, updated information, education and communication (IEC) materials on PSEA that are tailored to local cultural contexts, operational realities, the groups that are most at risk, and which take into account, among others, levels of literacy, languages, age and capacity. To support NGOs in meeting these needs, UNHCR and ICVA have jointly launched the PSEA Outreach and Communication Fund. Please go through the under-link for details.
