This is the tenth in a series of discussion papers produced by the International Forum on Development Service (Forum), which follows on from our research work on trends in international volunteering and cooperation in recent years. This paper aims to bring together organisations involved in international volunteering in their work on Millennium Development Goals, Sustainable Development Goals and the Post 2015 agenda to consolidate opportunities for the recognition of volunteerism. The views expressed in this paper are not necessarily those of Forum or its members or of the organisations for which the authors work. The responsibility for these views rests with the authors alone.
