What are EED’s policies on safeguarding?

EED is fully committed to safeguarding anyone who is in contact with EED and has a zero-tolerance policy where it has been determined that sexual exploitation, sexual abuse or sexual harassment have occurred in activities financed through its funds.

EED works in accordance with the Inter-Agency Standing Committee’s guidance on safeguarding, notably its published core principles.
