This report summarises the work done by the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) between October 2019 and October 2020 to improve global standards and performance on safeguarding against SEAH in the international aid sector.
The report is structured according to four strategic shifts namely:
1. Ensure support for survivors, victims and whistle-blowers; enhance accountability and transparency; strengthen reporting; tackling impunity
2. Incentivise cultural change through strong leadership, organisational accountability and better human resource processes
3. Adopt minimum standards, and ensure we and our partners meet them
4. Strengthen organisational capacity and capability across the international aid sector, including building the capability of implementing partners to meet the minimum standards.
