Protection from Sexual Exploitation and Abuse Strategy

Protection from Sexual Exploitation and Abuse Strategy

The overarching goal of this protection from sexual exploitation and abuse (PSEA) Strategy in Ethiopia is to protect community members from sexual exploitation and abuse (SEA) by humanitarian and development actors.

This entails ensuring that all humanitarian and development operations in Ethiopia implement and monitor a zero tolerance for SEA, including a zero impunity for any humanitarian or development actor found to have engaged in SEA. Protection from SEA embeds the prevention and response to SEA with a specific attention to victim assistance as per the Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) plan for accelerating PSEA.
