UNV promotes capacity development and learning for UN Volunteers as one of the key elements of strengthening the volunteer experience and facilitating the impact of volunteer assignments. Sharing of experience, knowledge and continuous learning of volunteers are part of high quality volunteer management and at the same time contributes to building capacity in host agencies.
The Capacity Development and Learning Facility (CDLF) provides Field Units with the means to plan, host and delivery capacity development and learning events or other innovative learning initiatives. It is a unique opportunity to actively advance the professional development, engagement and impact of UN Volunteers in the country of assignment.
Between 2012 and 2016 UNV launched eight (8) rounds of submissions and a total of 72 proposals were approved.
