- The Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) Task Force on Accountability to Affected Populations (AAP) was created by the IASC in July 2012.
- The IASC Task Force on Protection from Sexual Exploitation and Abuse (PSEA) by humanitarian workers was established in January 2012.
- Since January 2014, these 2 tasks force were combined as the IASC AAP/PSEA Task Team
Task team objectives :
- Foster a culture of accountability and protection from sexual exploitation and abuse at all levels of the humanitarian system.
- Encourage institutionalization of AAP and PSEA within humanitarian organizations, including local and national NGOs, INGOs, Red Cross Red Crescent movement and UN Agencies.
- Support operationalization of AAP and PSEA at collective level as well as individual agency level.
Participation is open to all interested humanitarian organisations, especially operational agencies. The task team brings together NGOs, UN, IOM, the Red Cross/Red Crescent Movement, and other national and international organisations on an equal footing. Participants may also be non-IASC or development actors. Participants are expected to actively contribute to the work of the Task Team and take on responsibilities to advance the Task Team’s work
