UNDP EB Report (DP/2004/24)

This Report addresses the activities of the United Nations Volunteers (UNV) during 2002-2003 and highlights the challenges ahead. The biennium was marked by continued dynamic growth, an evolution of the culture of partnership and networking, and a strategic decision to reinforce the added value of volunteerism in all UNV operations, building on the momentum created by the International Year of Volunteers (IYV) 2001. The contribution of UNV is articulated through the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the UNDP multi-year funding framework (MYFF).
