Reporting positive contribution of volunteering to the SDGs

Paragraph 1, page 28

In addition, as part of the campaign for the United Nations SDGs, the Government of Mali launched the My World 2030 survey to take into account the preoccupations of ordinary citizens in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda. The study was launched in all regions of Mali in May 2018 with the support of civil society organizations and coalitions: the National Council for civil society, the Forum of International NGOs in Mali, and the Forum of Organizations of civil society in Mali. More than 500 volunteers participated in the implementation of the study. In addition, the SDG Action Campaign recruited 50 online volunteers from a dozen countries to ensure the seizure of electronic data.
