Annual Report 2005/06
Making distinctive contributions

en français< >en español<
At the heart of UNV is the conviction that voluntary action by many millions of people is a vastly under recognized and underutilized resource, one that if fully harnessed could strengthen efforts in tackling development challenges worldwide. This annual report highlights examples of UNV’s activities within a framework of three areas of distinctive contributions that: widen access to services and improve delivery of services (Chapter 1); bring about inclusion and participation of those who are excluded (Chapter 2); and mobilize communities through voluntary action (Chapter 3).

These contributions are an integral part of UNV’s focus on advocating globally for volunteerism for development, integrating volunteerism into development programming and mobilizing volunteers. To this end, UNV’s activities support: achieving the MDGs and reducing human poverty; fostering democratic governance; promoting energy and environmental policies that drive sustainable development forward; strengthening resources to prevent and respond to crises; and fighting the spread of HIV/AIDS.
