Date and time
14 Mar 2022 | (UK time) 10:00 - 11:00am

We are building on the successful launch of RSH MENA Hub and the first webinar on Introduction to Safeguarding in September 2021. We are excited to host our next webinar which will take a deeper look at risk mitigation related to SEAH and approaches to address risks with a Q&A session at the end. This is the second in a series of webinars where we focus on key stages of the Safeguarding Journey. 

In this webinar, we will explore the following questions: 

  1. What are the key risks for SEAH in the aid sector?
  2. What are some good practice risk mitigation approaches in the aid sector? 
  3. Are we supposed to eliminate all risks related to SEAH? 
  4. What are the specific risks related to SEAH in the MENA region/Jordan? 
  5. And what approaches worked well to avoid doing harm and addressing risks of SEAH?
