PSEA Manual 10: Raising awareness with volunteers, staff and communities

Guideline 10 cover page
Guideline 10 of the PSEA Manual

We know that raising awareness is effective at reducing the risks of SEA. It also helps reinforce our accountability to communities by sharing information and building trust in the Red Cross and Red Crescent. PSEA should be an integral part of community engagement and accountability (CEA). In order to prevent and respond to SEA in the right way, it is crucial that everyone in the organization and affected communities understand the root causes of SEA. This includes their rights and obligations in relation to PSEA, what they can expect from the Red Cross and Red Crescent, as well as how to safely report a concern.
