State of the World’s Volunteerism Report
Posted by on December 19, 2011
First-Ever “State of the World’s Volunteerism Report” Released
The very first State of the World’s Volunteerism Report (SWVR) by the United Nations Volunteers (UNV) program was launched on International Volunteer Day (December 5). The report examines important contributions of volunteerism in diverse fields such as sustainable livelihoods, social inclusion, social cohesion, disaster risk reduction, governance and political participation. The State of the World’s Volunteerism Report shows that, in most societies around the world, volunteers make significant contributions to economic and social development. Through their voluntary actions, millions of people are contributing to meeting the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
