The partnership between the United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme and Luxembourg dates back to the year 2000, when the two partners signed their first agreement to deploy fully-funded UN Volunteers. The partnership is managed through the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs and its Directorate for Development Cooperation and Humanitarian Action.
In 2020, 34 nationals of Luxembourg served as UN Volunteers, 10 of these fully funded by the Government. In addition, the Government of Luxembourg generously sponsored two assignments for nationals of its development cooperation priority countries.
Luxembourg was one of the 124 co-sponsors of the UN General Assembly Resolution on Volunteering for the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (A/C.3/73/L.13) in 2018. In 2017, Luxembourg presented its Volunteer National Report, in the context of the Plan of Action to integrate volunteering in the 2030 Agenda.
