DSS water sets high standards for our field experts in terms of compliance with conduct standards and ethical rules while on assignment. All experts sign an agreement containing a number of listed ethical rules, known as the ‘Code of Conduct, before the deployment commences. The requesting partner organizations have also established clear structures and procedures in terms of protection from sexual exploitation and sexual abuse (PSEA). All experts are required to behave according to these agreements, codes and structures.

Deployed experts are also responsible for delivering:

  • monthly reports (updates to be shared with RVO via DSSwater@rvo.nl)
  • an end-of-mission report (to be shared with RVO via DSSwater@rvo.nl and with the requesting organization)
