UNDP Executive Board Decision (2006/18) - see page 15

The Executive Board welcomes the increased involvement of nationally recruited volunteers in UNV activities and encourages continued efforts in this direction, noting its potential for capacity development and sustainability. Therefore, the Executive Board encourages UNV to continue to increase its focus on assisting programme countries in developing sustainable national capacities, to mobilize volunteers domestically through, inter alia, national volunteer schemes, volunteer centres and networks, where appropriate.
