Canadian Resource Bank for Democracy and Human Rights (CANADEM)
Banque canadienne des ressources pour la démocratie et les droits de la personne
CANADEM, with a human rights and democracy mandate, was officially launched in February 1997 and opened its office in June 1997. Canada built upon many of the aspects of an earlier Norwegian initiative, including their title of NORDEM. CANADEM's mandate has since been expanded to include peacebuilding with a view to becoming a more comprehensive civilian standby mechanism to facilitate the UN in staffing the civilian components of its various field operations.

United Nations Volunteers (UNV) Becoming a UN Volunteer
The United Nations Volunteers programme (UNV) was created by the General Assembly of the United Nations in 1970, to serve as an operational partner in development co-operation at the request of UN member states. It is unique within the UN family and as an international volunteer undertaking. It reports to the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and works through UNDP's country offices around the world. There are about 4000 qualified, experienced and motivated women and men of over 140 nationalities annually serving in developing countries as volunteer specialists and field workers. Since 1971, roughly 18,000 UNVs from some 150 developing and industrialised nations 75% and 25% respectively in 1998 have worked in an equal number of countries. The UNV programme involves a wide spread of sectors: it maintains a roster covering some 108 professional categories. Agriculture, health and education feature prominently, as do social conditions, community development, vocational training, industry, transport and population. As of spring 1998, humanitarian relief and rehabilitation together with electoral and peace-building work accounted for more than 30 % of assignments. It works in partnership with governments, UN Agencies, Development Banks and non-governmental and community-based organisations. The programmes within which UNV Specialists serve are usually managed by governments; often there is technical input and supervision from one of the UN system Specialised Agencies, such as the Food & Agriculture Organisation, the International Labour Organisation, the World Food Programme, UNESCO, the UN High Commission for Refugees, the World Health Organisation, UNICEF, or from the World Bank. At the request of some governments UNV itself acts as executing agent.
