In close cooperation with the UN system, UNV is now working to guarantee the continued safety and wellbeing of all our UN Volunteers.
In collaboration with a number of UN partner agencies on the ground in Ecuador, UNV is assessing how UN Volunteers can assist in the relief efforts. UNV is ready to mobilize volunteers with extensive experience in the field of emergency response and early recovery.
People who are interested to serve as UN Volunteers in the response to the crisis in Ecuador are invited to register their profiles here, and select the code “ECUADOR_2016” in the Special Recruitment Section. If you are already registered on the UNV roster, go to myprofile.unv.organd select the code “ECUADOR_2016” in the Special Recruitment Section.
Based on previous experience in this kind of emergency, we are likely to need the support of UN Volunteers in the areas of civil engineering, architecture, disaster reduction, monitoring and evaluation, reporting, and communications, among others. As soon as the needs for specific volunteer assignments are defined, we will publish more details on our website here, and on our social media platforms.
UNV will continue to update the information on its response to the earthquake in Ecuador as things develop over the coming days.
