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, valued partnerships, and the consolidation of its resource base to attain UNDP’s Strategic Plan development outcomes.

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 resources or as other resources earmarked by contributors. Fifty-six countries contributed to regular resources in 2013, which totalled $895.7 million.

Other Resources
Other resources reached $3.8 billion in 2013.  Contributions provided by  governments amounted to $2.4 billion, while contributions from multilateral sources totaled $1.4 billion.
