IASC Revised Commitments on Accountability to Affected Populations and Protection from Sexual Exploitation and Abuse, 2017 (including Guidance Note and Resource List)

Published Date

Following the endorsement of the revised CAAP in November 2017, the IASC AAP PSEA Task Team developed a guidance note (building on the Core Humanitarian Standard and Grand Bargain Participation Revolution Recommendations) and a short-list of resources (developed with the CDAC Network) to accompany the CAAP.

In 2011, the IASC principals agreed to five Commitments on Accountability to Affected Populations (CAAP) as part of a framework for engagement with communities. The revised version was developed and endorsed by the IASC Principals on the 20th of November 2017 to reflect essential developments such as the Core Humanitarian Standard (CHS), the work done by the IASC on Inter-Agency community based complaints mechanisms including PSEA and the importance of meaningful collaboration with local stakeholders, which came out as a priority recommendation from the 2016 World Humanitarian Summit and in the Grand Bargain.
