UNV and China: 35 years of collaboration

Since 1981, the United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme has nurtured an active and fruitful partnership with the Government of the People’s Republic of China and other partners. Together, we support social and economic development and the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) throughout the country.

In 2016, 30 national UN Volunteers served in China to support the SDGs and inclusive development. 19 Chinese nationals served as UN Volunteers overseas to promote peace and development. 293 Chinese nationals volunteered online through UNV’s Online Volunteering service.
