GCF further solidified its actions for zero-tolerance of sexual exploitation, abuse, and harassment (SEAH) by introducing an updated SEAH Policy through the Independent Redress Mechanism's (IRM) preparation of an advisory report on preventing SEAH in GCF projects.  In "Preventing Sexual Abuse in Projects: Learnings from the World Bank," the Chair of the World Bank Inspection Panel Imrana Jalal shared her insights on gender-based violence at the project level and its far-reaching impacts on local communities and institutions. The talk was jointly organised by the Independent Integrity Unit (IIU) and IRM of GCF.
