On 18 October 2018, the UK government is hosting a conference in London to drive collective action to prevent and respond to sexual exploitation and abuse and sexual harassment in the aid sector. Representatives from NGOs, multilateral organisations, private sector suppliers, donors, governments, beneficiaries, survivors and victims, parliamentarians; independent experts, and law enforcement agencies will attend.

Following the revelations earlier this year we committed to driving up standards and ensure the aid sector protects the people it serves. This conference is an important step forward to meeting that commitment.
