This Manual was developed to support Red Cross and Red Crescent leadership, headquarters and personnel in field operations to implement practical solutions that adhere to minimum standards in line with the Inter-agency Standing Committee Minimum Operating Standards on Prevention and Response to Sexual Exploitation and Abuse (PSEA). It’s particularly designed to support individuals within National Societies, and Red Cross and Red Crescent humanitarian response who do not have specific expertise in PSEA to understand what actions they can and should take in relation to PSEA.
The manual is divided into two parts. The first is targeted at leadership and headquarters' staff to take action on PSEA. The second section focuses on supporting operational and field staff and volunteers. The document also contains a number of practical tools such as assessment tools, example terms of reference, action plans etc.
