Reporting positive contribution of volunteering to the SDGs

Paragraph 1, page 2

CSOs, including the youth, were actively involved in the SDG awareness campaigns. In this respect, CSOs identified SDG targets that related to their mandate and contributed in raising awareness for specific SDGs. For instance, the Alliance for Accountability Advocates Zambia, in partnership with UN agencies in Zambia particularly United Nations Volunteers, United Nations Fund for Population Activities and United Nations Development Programme organised a National Youth Conference under the theme "Engaging the Youth in Monitoring and Accountability of the Sustainable Development Goals-SDGs for a Sustainable Zambia”. The conference attracted over 200 youth from all the 10 provinces.
