We are committed to transparency and accountability.

Operational Policies
ACET is committed to operating transparently and ensuring it is accountable to supporters, donors, partners and clients. Accordingly, we are committed to ensuring a safe and inclusive environment for all members of our community. We believe that safeguarding measures are essential for protecting vulnerable members of society, particularly to prevent sexual abuse and exploitation and sexual harassment (SEA/SH).

To this end, we have recently taken several steps to improve our Environmental and Social safeguarding measures and frameworks, including developing an Environmental and Social Commitment Plan (ESCP), a Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy, an SEA/SH Action plan, a Stakeholder Engagement Plan, and Labor Management Procedures. Please find below all our key policies and statements.

As an implementing partner to the World Bank’s Think Africa Partnership, a multi-donor trust fund aiming to translate knowledge into economic policy action, we ensure that our policies are aligned with the World Bank’s E&S standards and requirements.



Grievance Redress Mechanism
Anyone who has concerns relating to ACET’s activities and programs or feels aggrieved can use the ACET Grievance Redress Mechanism (GRM) to register their complaints.  

ACET GRM provides a system to address and resolve grievances or complaints from all persons/stakeholders affected by ACET’s programs and activities promptly, fairly, and in a manner that is, to the extent possible, acceptable to all parties. 

It ensures stakeholders’ concerns are addressed to help minimize disputes or conflicts arising from the implementation of any ACET activity. A document providing a more comprehensive overview of ACET GRM function is linked below.
