Toolkits for Addressing PSEA
The toolkits explore strategies that can be used while working towards the PSEA. Based on the database of resources under compilation by Digna, we have developed eight different toolkits. In general terms, they unpack what many different organizations from the international development and humanitarian sector have done to address sexual exploitation and abuse. This includes their approaches to managing risk, their strategies and the best practices they have put forth. This document provides the full set of toolkits, each available individually. Overall, the eight toolkits provide over forty straightforward and practical documents.
Digna is committed to providing your organization with clear and useful tools. We hope they will help your work developing PSEA policies, as well as reaching partners, program and project participants in a respectful and ethical way.

AQOCI’s Comité québécois femmes et développement (Quebec committee on women and development, or CQFD) partnered with Digna to produce this fact sheet on supporting a survivor.
Survivors of sexual violence experience an incredibly difficult ordeal, which is made much more complex by the international context in which international cooperation organizations work. How can these organizations provide better support to a survivor of sexual violence? This brief gives a non-exhaustive picture of best practices for providing support medically, psychosocially and throughout the legal process. The present brief is divided as follows:
- Introduction: a survivor-centered feminist approach
- Disclosure of sexual violence: helpful attitudes
- Medical accompaniment
- Psychosocial accompaniment
- Accompaniment throughout the legal process
