Following a call for better coordination of the UN system to address sexual exploitation and abuse (SEA), in January 2016 the Secretary-General established a High-Level Steering Group under the leadership of his Chef de Cabinet, comprising heads of the offices, departments, funds and programmes involved in responding to issues of sexual abuse and gender based violence. The role of the HLSG is to ensure that the senior management team is directly involved in the strengthening and alignment of the system-wide response to sexual exploitation and abuse irrespective of whether allegations are made against United Nations or non-United Nations forces authorized under a Security Council mandate. In March 2016, the HLSG identified the need to establish a common understanding of terminology in the context of sexual exploitation and abuse for purposes of enhanced communication.
