UNICEF derives its income entirely from voluntary contributions. Income is divided into ‘regular’ and ‘other’ resources. Regular resources are unrestricted in their use and are utilized to fund country programmes along with programme support, management and administration activities approved by the UNICEF Executive Board. Other resources are restricted in their use and are given for specific, board-approved purposes within the country programmes. They are further classified as ‘regular’ or ‘emergency’ contributions.
Total income to UNICEF increased by 1 per cent, from $2,762 million in 2005 to $2,781 million in 2006.
INCOME TO UNICEF BY SOURCE, 2006
Private sector/ non-governmental organizations 29%
Inter-organizational arrangements 6%
Total: $2,781 million
Income to regular resources increased by 30 per cent to $1,056 million in 2006, and contributions to other resources decreased by 12 per cent to $1,725 million. Regular resources therefore accounted for 38 per cent of total income, an increase from 29 per cent in 2005. Other resources accounted for 62 per cent of total income in 2006, a decrease from 71 per cent in 2005.
