Reporting positive contribution of volunteering to the SDGs
Paragraph 1, page 47
Lithuanian non-governmental organisations (NGOs) are important partners of public sector in the formation and implementation of the development cooperation policy. The composition of the National Development Cooperation Commission includes two ‘umbrella’ non-governmental development cooperation organisations, which unite 37 organisations. The input of these organisations is especially significant in the spheres of global education, public information on the importance and benefits of development cooperation and promotion of volunteering.
