While there is room for disagreement about migration policy, the humanitarian imperative means that we must never needlessly sacrifice the survival and dignity of any vulnerable people, including migrants.
The aim of this policy is to ensure that the IFRC takes every necessary step to prevent sexual exploitation and abuse by IFRC Personnel and to respond adequately to those incidents it cannot prevent. Ensuring the well-being of the survivor and accountability and integrity of our engagement with members of local communities is inherent to this aim. Ensuring fair treatment of personnel accused of SEA in accordance with the IFRC Internal Rules is inherent to this policy.
Local humanitarian action already has an enormous life-saving impact around the world. It could do even more – in particular, it could be the key to bridging the growing gap (currently over $15 billion) between humanitarian needs and available funds — if the international community began to really invest in it. If we focus our collective efforts on ensuring strong, sustainable, relevant, effective local organizations we will achieve better preparedness, response and recovery in humanitarian settings, improving outcomes for affected populations.
This report is based on the feedback that National Societies submitted on the Florence Call for Action, highlighting up to three activities related to the topics of Migration, Social Aspects and Volunteering.
