UNDP EB Report (DP/2019/19)
The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme provides highly motivated and skilled individuals with an opportunity to volunteer within the United Nations system. This report, covering 2018, presents the results achieved by UNV during the first year of its four-year Strategic Framework, 2018-2021 (DP/2018/6). Noting the accomplishments of the programme, the report reflects on the organizational transformation and strategic repositioning during 2018 and looks to the future. The organization is now better focused and reorganized to deliver on its dual mandate of mobilizing volunteers to support the United Nations peace, development and human rights agenda and advocating for the importance of volunteerism for the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
