The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
Planète Urgence contributes at its level to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals set by the UN, and focuses in particular on 6 objectives:
In a world where crises are on the increase, it is necessary to multiply local and international solidarity in order to be able to achieve the ambitious Sustainable Development Goals set by the UN.
International solidarity volunteering is a concrete and powerful response to today’s challenges. 97% of the partners supported by Planète Urgence’s volunteerism believe that the intervention of these volunteers contributes to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
In November 2020, Planète Urgence published its report “Volunteering and Sustainable Development Objectives: Studies and Experiences” with the aim of demonstrating the powerful impact that volunteering can bring to our local partners and its contribution to SDGs.
Our volunteer assignment impact reports embrace the spirit of our association: ensuring that assignments performed by volunteers help advance the projects of our partners on the ground.
We have three objectives in terms of measuring the results and evaluating the impact of projects implemented or supported by Planète Urgence:
- • Recording the number of training hours given, recipients affected, trees planted, and people trained and/or made more aware
- • Understanding the changes brought about by the assignments performed by volunteers for the recipient local organisations and populations
- • Improving the volunteering protocol, partner selection procedures and project development process.
Measuring results and evaluating the impact of programmes is also a question of demonstrating accountability and transparency to those who donate, whether they are private sponsors (individuals, companies and foundations) or public sponsors.
The diagnostics and indicator analyses implemented by Planète Urgence as part of the volunteering process and the Environment & Development programme illustrate the wide range of corporate support work impacts and results for our partners:
Endangered forests and biodiversity preservation
Supporting projects aiming to make a positive impact on the environment.
Promote communities local development
Supporting local stakeholders working to promote integrated, community-focused development. Respond to a social, societal or environmental issue while developing an economic model that aims for financial sustainability.
