Common Approach to Protection from Sexual Exploitation, Abuse and Harassment (CAPSEAH).


What is the CAPSEAH?

The CAPSEAH brings actions from existing practice, policies and standards on safeguarding against Sexual Exploitation, Abuse and Harassment (SEAH) together into a simple guide. It is primarily aimed at everyone contributing to humanitarian, international development and peacekeeping work. It aims to stimulate more and better collective action to tackle SEAH.

CAPSEAH has four parts: a collective vision for action; common principles to underpin PSEAH work; minimum recommended actions; and guidance on how different types of actors can implement the actions.  It is expected to be used mainly online.

A summary version of CAPSEAH containing the vision, principles and minimum recommended actions is available for download in PDF in ten languages - English, French, Spanish, Arabic, Russian, Chinese, Portuguese, Bangla, Urdu, Amharic.
