Plan of Action 2016-2030 for integrating volunteering into peace and development
Plan of Action
What is the Plan of Action?
A global framework through which the various stakeholders can support and leverage the potential of volunteerism as a tested and effective mechanism that deepens and broadens civic engagement and sustainable development outcomes.
UN Secretary General's Report on Volunteering 2018
In this report, the Secretary-General has highlighted several priority actions that will enable stakeholders to maximize the impact of voluntary efforts for peace and development under the 2030 Agenda. A shift from ad hoc and isolated volunteer projects to sustainable investment at scale is needed to widen volunteering opportunities and ensure the inclusion of all types of people. Increased practice- sharing and knowledge development, in particular on informal volunteering and volunteering in fragile and low-income contexts, are required.
How can stakeholders engage in the Plan of Action?
