Reporting positive contribution of volunteering to the SDGs

Paragraph 1, page 19

The Guinean government contributes to a favorable environment for the development of volunteering through a national policy that guides the establishment of the National Agency for Youth Volunteering of Guinea (ANVJ). Similarly, hundreds of Guinean associations approved by the State contribute to the implementation of community development projects. Finally, the security conditions and the legendary hospitality of the Guinean people make Guinea one of the most countries that host the most international volunteers in sub-Saharan Africa. Volunteering is now an important part of the development process in Guinea, where a large number of volunteers are on the ground and are involved in various fields with communities and in various structures. Notwithstanding this vital role that volunteering plays, force is note that it is sometimes neglected in the development plans. The national and international volunteer organizations have planification instruments that integrate the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). All national and international volunteer organizations have a strategic action plan that takes into account the 2030 agenda (ANVJ, France Volontaires). All the national and international volunteer organizations have prioritized the targets of the SDGs , having brought our sector to the Voluntary National Review for the next five years, particularly for SDGs: 6, 7, 11, 12 and 17. The international organizations have sensitivized and implied the actors of the volunteer sector to the process of appropriation of the Sustainable Development Goals and their targets in the domain of implementation.

Paragraph 2, page 73

An important contribution of United Nations volunteers: As part of the promotion of sustainable production methods, 150 volunteers from the United Nations United Nations crisscross the country and make communication for Behavior Change for new farming techniques and post-harvest operations.

Paragraph 3, page 74

In addition, the United Nations System, through its volunteer program, actively contributes to preservation of terrestrial ecosystems and the fight against climate change in Guinea. Indeed, 17 national volunteers participate in the restoration of vegetation cover, 42 national volunteers make the Communication for Behavior Change in Environmental Protection and 17 other French volunteers work to implement measures against climate change in the country.
