Focus on Resources Docs: Volunteering and resilience

In this may edition of our "Focus on Ressources Docs" we invite you to read a UNV issue brief from January 2014, on environmental sustainability and volunteerism.

In the brief, you will find more elements on how does volunteerism enhances sustainability in development projects. More specifically, and in a current context where the approach on resilience is gaining importance, the brief gives arguments on the ways in which volunteerism "promotes long-term processes that help to build the resilience of communities, improve capacity for local self-sufficiency, encourage empowerment of the grassroots level and durably change attitudes and mindsets, which is necessary to sustain environmental gains".

Find more about the brief, as well as more documentation on volunteering and development on Ressources Docs.
