Comments: While the project was developed to support the Beijing Olympic Volunteer Programme Action Plan, particularly in relation to training, it also encompassed broader objectives that leveraged the focus on volunteering for the 2008 Beijing Olympics to develop awareness and capacity in relation to the contribution of volunteering to environmental objectives and MDGs. The project was launched in July 2007 for an initial 3-year period and subsequently extended (Phase 2) to 2011. Note: no Management Response
