How to measure the contribution of volunteering to development ? What indicateurs can we imagine ?

In September 2013, the contribution of volunteering to development was acknowledged by the United Nations’ General Assembly. Indeed, volunteering emerges from civic commitment, it can contribute to "bottm-up" actions of development and can help building bridges between cultures. As such, it can contribute to a more "human" approach of development.

But how can we convey its effects? How can we measure the contribution of volunteering at the human level ? What indicators can we suggest ?
