The United Nations Country Team facilitated a joint 2022 Protection from Sexual Exploitation and Abuse (PSEA) Capacity Development Training for implementing partners (IPs) and vendors. The two-day sessions were held at the Belize Biltmore Plaza in Belize City to orient and refresh participants on the UN mandate on PSEA which extends to all implementing partners and affiliates.

The UN globally has a zero-tolerance policy on sexual exploitation and abuse. Partners of the UN receive training on the Prevention of Sexual Exploitation and Abuse (PSEA) and agree to the shared vision and mission of eliminating all forms of PSEA in their programme and service delivery.

Seventy persons attended and the sessions informed on basic concepts of PSEA, strategies to prevent its occurrence and measures to protect the rights of victims.
