The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme is the UN organization that promotes volunteerism to support peace and development worldwide.
Lao PDR has been at the forefront of SDG localization under leadership of the Prime Minister, who chairs the national SDG Steering Committee, and with lead support by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, together with the Ministry of Planning and Investment and the Lao Statistics Bureau. Nearly 60 percent of the indicators of the 8th National Socio-Economic Development Plan (2016-2020) are linked to the SDG indicators. Lao PDR was the first country worldwide to adopt an 18th national SDG on removing the unexploded ordnance obstacle to national development. In this context, there is the need for enhanced outreach and advocacy on the Agenda 2030 at national and sub-national level. Central support in this regard is provided by the UN Communications Group. The Youth Volunteer’s main focus will be on supporting the work of the inter-UN agency UN Communications Group, helping to ensure successful outreach through implementing activities detailed in the Unit’s strategic action plans in line with the above-mentioned priorities. The UN Communications Group supports the Government and the UN Team in communicating the successes of their joint work, and helps raise awareness on substantive priorities. The UN Resident Coordinator’s Office has had successful experience hosting a Youth volunteer on a similar assignment, which also proved to be an insightful learning opportunity for the volunteer. Among many other priorities supported, the Youth Volunteer led the revitalization of the national online platform for the Round Table Process.
