RG2 on Accountability and Inclusion focuses on making humanitarian responses and aid workers more accountable to affected people; and better understanding the needs and views of the communities we serve; especially the most vulnerable.

The Results Group is working to strengthen accountability to affected people; improve protection from and response to sexual exploitation and abuse (SEA) and sexual harassment (SH); and to apply accountability and inclusion standards. In doing so, it considers persons with disabilities, mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS) and gender considerations. It also seeks to strengthen linkages where possible between the thematic areas.

 

Priority areas of action:

  1. Humanitarian responses continuously informed & adapted through active participation of affected populations
  2. Existing regional/national networks linked to global efforts on accountability and inclusion
  3. Protection from and response to sexual exploitation and abuse (SEA) and sexual harassment (SH) is improved
  4. Global platform developed (for accountability and inclusion tools and resources)
  5. International standards on accountability and inclusion applied in full

  

Note: This group builds on the valuable outputs of the previous IASC Task Team on Accountability to Affected Populations and Protection from Sexual Exploitation and Abuse, and the IASC Task Team on Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities in Humanitarian Action. These task teams have completed their work in January 2019.
