Resource Library

This resource library serves as a tool for InterAction members to support their efforts around safeguarding in the aid sector.

This library serves as a hub where stakeholders and NGO teams can access resources related to safeguarding. These resources range from guidance documents, training template, and other tools designed to help organizations and NGO staff tackle issues on sexual exploitation abuse, and harassment.

The resource library provides open access to tools and other useful information. It is designed to improve the humanitarian and development sector’s understanding of and ability to prevent and respond to incidents of sexual harassment and abuse when they occur.

Due to some of the content in the Reference Library, it is only available to staff of InterAction Members. Please register utilizing your work email address. If you would like to explore becoming an InterAction Member, please contact Burt Blanchard at

Duty of Care: Protection of Humanitarian Aid Workers from Sexual Violence

Duty of Care International

Duty of care is being increasingly discussed within the humanitarian community, and becoming an important area within risk management practice for organisation’s wishing to better address health, safety, and security issues for their staff. This is a welcomed move, with humanitarian action feeling progressively dangerous1, and cases like Steve Dennis v. NRC2 underscoring the need to do better as a community.

Child Protection Training Partners Guide

Helping Partners Develop or Strengthen Their Organizational Child Protection Policies.

Catholic Relief Services has developed a facilitator’s guide to help organizations develop or further strengthen their policies to protect children. This guide is meant to help partners increase their understanding of the issues involved in safeguarding children as well as best practices for organizations in creating safe, protective environments.

Different partners and organizations are at different stages in this process. This facilitation guide is therefore designed in several modules, to allow partners to pick and choose those that are most appropriate for their needs. Not all partners will need all modules. Some partners will want this to help improve their staff’s understanding of protection issues and skills. Others will want to help their management strengthen or develop a protection policy.

This training can be used simply to improve staff and volunteers’ understanding of protection. In that case, the organization can choose a few modules that help build specific skills and knowledge. They can present them as simply a training to staff, volunteers and interested management.

This training can also be used to upgrade or create a protection policy. In this case, the organization can choose to have its management team go through the training on their own, or also with staff. In effect, then, the training would become a policy development workshop.
