Promoting volunteerism for peace and development is an integral part of every UN Volunteer assignment. The Description of Assignment (DOA) needs to outline ways to promote volun-teerism for development through and alongside the UN Volunteer assignment.
Assignments in the fields of agriculture, HIV/AIDS, community mobilization, human rights, civil or humanitarian affairs should all provide ample opportunities for demonstrating that vol-unteerism contributes directly to development. For all these areas of specialization the promo-tion of volunteerism for development should not be expressed solely through a number of bullet points in the DOA template but should be clearly mainstreamed within the DOA. The promotion of volunteerism for development, engaging in volunteering activities, building vol-unteering-based partnerships, and/or mobilizing local communities needs to permeate UN Volunteer assignments and be carried out within the context of their duties.
Volunteerism for development is a means to achieve the overarching objective of the as-signment; therefore the DOA should include specific tasks related to the promotion of volun-teerism for development tailor-made to the specific position. UNV encourages the inclusion of volunteerism for development in all areas of UN Volunteers’ work while, at the same time, recognizing that not all assignments easily lend themselves to the pursuit of volunteerism within their framework. For such DOA where the volunteerism for development cannot be mainstreamed, we suggest the inclusion of a number of bullet points that pursue the promo-tion of volunteerism for development throughout the assignment in addition to the bullet points indicated in the DOA template. Those bullet points could include:
The Rural and Regional Development Sector focuses on a comprehensive ap-proach to development at the local level, in line with European principles and norms. Through its five regional offices, the Sector targets: improving local gov-ernment capacity to plan, identify priorities and deliver results; stimulating eco-nomic recovery through entrepreneurial activity, job growth and investment, in-creasing the competitiveness of local producers and income generation; strengthening local priority infrastructure; delivery of social services to vulnera-ble populations, and the sustainable use of natural resources and energy efficiency.
