ActionAid is committed to standing in solidarity with women living in poverty and exclusion around the world, as they campaign for economic and climate justice, and women’s rights in emergency response.
During the six months of this reporting period we completed a field manual for integrating community-based protection across humanitarian programs, titled Safety with Dignity. This is an extensive piece of work which provides a series of human rights-based tools to enable people at risk from disaster and conflict to reduce their vulnerability to violence.
Safety with Dignity makes a valuable contribution to increasing our organisational accountability towards rights holders.
We believe that downward accountability to those with whom we work is central to our legitimacy and the views of rights holders are indeed the basis of our programming and campaigning work.
