UNV STRATEGIC FRAMEWORK 2014-2017
UNV’s vision is a world where volunteerism is recognized, within societies, as a way for all people and countries to achieve peace and development through the simultaneous eradication of poverty and significant reduction of inequalities and exclusion.
UNV’s vision is a world where volunteerism is recognized, within societies, as a way for all people and countries to achieve peace and development through the simultaneous eradication of poverty and significant reduction of inequalities and exclusion.
UNV’s Strategic Framework for the period 2014-2017 is the first of its kind, striving to harness the power of volunteers and volunteerism to support the achievement of agreed goals for peace and development.
*
UNV STRATEGIC FRAMEWORK 2014-2017
UNV is the only UN entity with capacity to mobilize large numbers of people, with appropriately assessed skills and expertise, as volunteers for field-based
United Nations programmes and projects, enhanced by South-South and triangular cooperation.
The vision of the Strategic Framework is translated into concrete deliverables in an accompanying Integrated Resources and Results Matrix (IRRM) that enables UNV to show how it will be held accountable for its results.
UNV is the only UN entity with capacity to mobilize large numbers of people, with appropriately assessed skills and expertise, as volunteers for field-based United Nations programmes and projects.
South-South triangular cooperation is a focus of this Strategic Framework, which will be to building on UNV’s record to date in mobilizing professionals from programme countries to support a wide range of technical, social and human development activities in other programme countries. UNV will build on its experience and reflect further on the trends in order to take the opportunities and realize the full potential that triangular collaboration brings to peace and development through volunteerism.

UNV Results
Outcome 1
Outcome 2
Community
Peace building
National capacity development through volunteer schemes
Through the Strategic Framework we plan to have a solid foundation of an effective and efficient organization that, through focal programme areas and working towards outcomes, we deliver development impact with our partners.
UNV’s envisioned development impact is to bring more people to actively engage with peace and development actions globally. So societies will become more cohesive and stable, with enhanced collective objectives and well-being.
UNV’s results are translated in the framework in two interrelated components: programme results (two outcomes) and institutional effectiveness (result area).
Programme Outcome 1 states that by integrating high quality and well-supported UN Volunteers and volunteerism in their programmes, UN entities are more effective in delivering their results.
Through Outcome 2, UNV will ensure that countries more effectively integrate volunteerism within national frameworks enabling better engagement of people in development processes.
*
By the end of 2017 UNV will:
 
Increase UN Volunteers to 10,000, including 3,000 UN Youth Volunteers
Maintain the proportion of 80% of UN Volunteers from the South
Increase percentage of female UN Volunteers in non-family duty stations to 35%
Double UN Online Volunteers to 22,000
Increase contributions from UN Member States and other partners to US $50 million per annum. The total budget will be $300 million per annum from UNV activities, of which 8% is considered administrative budget
(( Just for your reference, UNV facts and figures as of 2013
UNV recruited 6,351 qualified and committed UN Volunteers, from 152 nationalities, including 1021 UN Volunteers below the age of 29 (16% youth)
More than 80% of UN Volunteers are from the South, serving with 33 UN entities, in 129 countries
40% of UN Volunteers are women
UNV recruited 11,328 UN Online Volunteers contributing through 17,370 online assignments
The 2013 budget of UNV activities was $208 million, of which under 11% is considered administrative budget.

and developments.
To achieve key development goals, such as the current MDGs and the Post-2015 Agenda, and to safeguard against the risk of reversal of development gains, UNV has identified the following current trends and developments that must be addressed in its activities in the next four years.
UNV Strategic Framework seeks to integrate these recent developments with UNV’s long term efforts to meet its expanded mandate. It also focuses on UNV’s efficiency and effectiveness in achieving organizational results, including leveraging and expanding the knowledge base on the role and impact of volunteering in transformational global change, and supporting development results through UN Volunteers assigned with various partner UN entities.
*
Volunteerism enables participation beyond political dialogue and translates into a stronger role for people’s engagement in their societies.
Young volunteers are both a major resource for development and key agents for social and economic transformation and technological innovation.
The volunteer sector can build on new opportunities like greater access to global markets, wider information and knowledge networks and new technologies and social media to generate and share knowledge, including reaching marginalized groups and remote communities.
Development can only come from common efforts of all parts of society and individual citizens. Volunteerism enables participation beyond political dialogue and translates into a stronger role for people’s engagement in ensuring sustainable efforts towards equitable growth and well-being.
Youth are both a major resource for development and key agents for social and economic transformation and technological innovation. Young people face unique challenges and vulnerabilities, while also having great potential, being better educated and connected than ever before.

UNV STRATEGIC FRAMEWORK 2014-2017
UNV delivers results, according to country needs, through volunteers and through global, regional and country programmes and projects.
UNV provides the opportunity to:
enable the UN system to increase voice and broaden participation of people within its work;
advance the Post-2015 development agenda and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by tapping the commitment, solidarity and engagement that is unique to volunteerism; and
strengthen social cohesion and trust by promoting individual and collective action, that helps resolve development problems and builds trust, which contributes to local, national and global efforts to eradicate poverty and sustain peace and development.
Our pool of talented people from across the world:
are willing and able to work in all development and peace situations, including some of the most difficult and remote contexts;
have the ability to work with people and organizations in local communities to draw upon the synergies between local knowledge and expert solutions; and
