Assigment Context 

The prevention of sexual exploitation and abuse has, for decades, been at the core of UNICEF’s mandate. UNICEF has a zero-tolerance policy for sexual exploitation and abuse perpetrated by employees, personnel and sub-contractors of UNICEF and implementing partners. 

In December 2018, under the Championship of UNICEF, the IASC Principals laid out in a Plan for Accelerating PSEA at Country-Level. The plan outlines three main priorities: 1) safe, accessible and dignified reporting that is gender and child sensitive; 2) quality SEA survivor assistance; and 3) enhanced accountability, including through prompt and respectful investigations. A Results Monitoring Framework has been developed and rolled-out at country level to measure progress and results at country and global level. 

UNICEF Mexico is organising PSEA trainings for staff and Implementing Partners and conducting PSEA risk assessments, and thereafter working with Implementing partners to jointly strengthen prevention of and response to sexual exploitation and abuse through strengthening prevention, reporting, referral and investigation capacities. Through these measures, UNICEF Mexico together with Implementing Partners aims to create a safer and more protective environment for every child.
