Reporting positive contribution of volunteering to the SDGs

Paragraph 1, page 90

The definition of the main lines of humanitarian action, intervention areas and channels must be widely shared with sectors of civil society active in the field of volunteering and emergency interventions in coordination with their representative networks. Their engagement will also facilitate the exchange of information with a view to launch local public calls for the financing of emergency projects.
