Partnerships are at the heart of everything UNIDIR does. The financial support of partners allows UNIDIR to expand its reach, working on disarmament with an array of like-minded partners to deliver multi-year programming aligned with the Institute’s annual work plan and budget.
UNIDIR is primarily funded by voluntary contributions from Member States and also partners with other UN agencies and private foundations. UNIDIR receives a subvention from the regular budget and is ODA-eligible.
The financial annex of the annual Director’s reports detail where funds come from and how and where UNIDIR uses resources to achieve results.
UNIDIR may receive a subvention towards meeting the costs of the Director and the staff of the Institute through the regular budget of the United Nations. The amount of the subvention is less than half of the assured income from voluntary sources. A subvention is requested to the General Assembly by recommendation from UNIDIR’s Board of Trustees through the Secretary-General. For more details, please see UNIDIR’s Statute
