Income and Expenditures

Development is a long-term challenge that requires both strategic focus, and the ability to  actively respond to crises and opportunities. In a changing development environment, UNDP is working towards diversification and consolidation of its resource base.

Regular Resources
UNDP is funded entirely from voluntary contributions by a range of partners, including UN Member States, and multilateral and other organizations. These contributions are provided as either regular budget resources or as other resources earmarked by contributors. Fifty countries contributed to regular resources in 2012, which totalled $846.1 million.

Other Resources
Other resources reached $3.79 billion in 2012. Local resources provided by programme countries  increased by 5.3 percent in 2012 over 2011. Multilateral contributions rose to over $1.5 billion.
