Volunteering and the SDGs: Leaving no one behind

The Regional Consultation on the Plan of Action to Integrate Volunteering into the 2030 Agenda in Africa organized in the context of the Africa Regional on Sustainable Development (ARFSD) as mandated by UN General Assembly Resolution A/RES/73/140, and will take place on 17 April 2019 in Marrakesh, Morocco. 

The Consultation will provide a space for governments, civil society, and other organizations to identify opportunities to support volunteers to accelerate SDG progress and maximize the potential of volunteering to tackle the region’s most pressing issues.

High-level panelists from the government and civil society will discuss innovations and best practices, explore opportunities for new partnerships and approaches, and suggest ways to overcome challenges. Findings from a regional synthesis report that draws on information submitted by African Member States on the scale, scope and impact of volunteerism across the region, will also be shared. The session will be moderated by Mr. Njoya Tikum, Regional Manager, United Nations Volunteers. 

The Regional Consultation on the Plan of Action to Integrate Volunteering into the 2030 Agenda in Africa will take place 17 April 2019, from 1300 to 1430, Morocco time.
