Putting PSEAH policies into practice


6, 13, 15 and 19 June 2023, online

Humanitarian organisations are already well equipped with policies, guidelines and Codes of Conduct when it comes to the prevention of sexualised exploitation, abuse and harassment (PSEAH). However, putting these policies and guidelines into practice presents a challenge for many NGOs.



  • Understanding the importance of safeguarding policies in humanitarian action
  • Policy contents and keeping policies up-to-date
  • Target groups of safeguarding policies
  • How to design safeguarding roles and responsibilities for humanitarian teams
  • How to operationalise safeguarding policies
  • How to monitor the implementation of safeguarding policies and commitments
  • How to motivate employees to implement safeguarding commitments
