Annual Survey on Reporting of Sexual Harassment
The Task Force’s technical sub-group on improved reporting of sexual harassment has developed a survey to annually collect an overview of the state of reporting of sexual harassment in the organizations of the UN system. The survey aggregates data from across participating organizations, and the collection in 2023 includes data on reporting of sexual harassment from 2022. In an effort to further openness and transparency, the Task Force has decided to publicly share the narrative results report, which can be found below.
On 14 June 2023 the UN System-wide Knowledge Hub on Addressing Sexual Harassment was launched. This effort to strengthen collaboration and partnerships across the United Nations system to eliminate sexual harassment serves as a vital tool, consolidating resources, tools, and best practices from across the UN system to address sexual harassment. The Hub is available to all UN personnel, Member States, civil society, and the public, fostering transparency and accountability.

The Victim-Centred Approach in Practice
The Office of the Victims' Rights Advocate, in collaboration with IOM, OHCHR and the CEB Task Force on Addressing Sexual Harassment, has produced a United Nations System-wide Training Module to provide participants with a clear and practical understanding of what the victim-centred approach means and what needs to be done to put a victim/survivor first. The training module, intended for all United Nations staff and related personnel, outlines the responsibilities of each person working for the United Nations so they will know how to respond in accordance with the victim-centred approach when they become aware of an allegation of sexual misconduct.
More information about the training module, including all materials, can be found on the Victims’ Rights First website through the below link.
