Our Funding and Delivery

Where our money comes from and what we spend it on?

The 2008-2012 Country Programme has delivered assistance amounting to approximately $75 million. The Peace and Recovery programme delivered more than 63%, followed by the Governance, Environment and Poverty clusters. This assistance has been provided through significant resources mobilized from development partners. Key donors include the European Union (EU), the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID), the Government of Japan, the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), the Government of Norway and the Government of Germany. In addition, UNDP’s Bureau for Crisis Prevention and Recovery (BCPR) has also made a significant contribution to the programme. The total resources mobilized amounted to $92.93 million, some of which will be carried over into the new Country Programme, starting January 1, 2013.

The estimated resource envelope for the new country programme is $60 million, of which $5.2 million is allocated from UNDP regular resources and $54.8 million is to be mobilized from development partners. Around two-thirds of the budget goes to the ‘Governance for Empowerment and Social Inclusion’ (GESI) focus area, while one-third is allocated to the ‘Environmental Sustainability and Resilience’ (ESR) focus area.
