Accountability to Affected People (AAP) is the active commitment by humanitarian actors to use power responsibly to take account of, give account to, and be held to account by the people they seek to assist. It is a rights-based framework grounded in the rights, dignity, capacity and safety of people through the responsible use of power in humanitarian action. This means providing information to communities; ensuring humanitarian agencies’ decisions are informed by their views; and enabling affected communities to assess and comment on agencies’ performance, including on sensitive matters such as sexual exploitation and abuse (SEA).
