II. SVRI members' requests

1) Survey request: Report the abuse - Breaking the silence on sexual violence within the humanitarian community

This survey<https://questionpro.com/t/ALjnTZSzcb> forms part of a project looking at sexual violence within the humanitarian community. The information that you provide through filling out this survey, will further understanding on the extent of sexual violence within the humanitarian community. It will assist in making the necessary changes to ensure that humanitarian actors and those interacting with the humanitarian community are protected from sexual violence. While the time commitment required to finish the survey largely depends on the number of experiences you are reporting, it will take a minimum of 10 minutes to complete. However, you do have the option of saving it at any point and continuing at a later date. This survey is only available in English at this time. The intention is to expand to additional languages when funding for translation is available. We thank you sincerely for your contribution, and for allowing your voice to be heard.

2) ISPCAN Positive Parenting questionnaire

This year, the International Society for the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect (ISPCAN) is focusing on Positive Parenting, which means many of our events and publications will feature the topic.
