Budgetary and financial situation of the organizations of the United Nations system

The Chief Executives Board for Coordination (CEB) secretariat prepares a biennial statistical report on the budgetary and financial situation of the organizations of the United Nations system. This report is prepared pursuant to General Assembly resolution 63/311 on system-wide coherence, in which the Assembly requested the Secretary-General to create a central repository of information on operational activities for development, including disaggregated statistics on all funding sources and expenditures, building on the comprehensive statistical analysis of the financing of operational activities for development, and to ensure appropriate and user-friendly online access and regular updating of the information contained therein. In addition, in its resolution 71/243, the Assembly requested the Secretary-General to continue to strengthen the analytical quality of system-wide reporting on funding for the United Nations operational activities for development, aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals, and in that regard called for the publication of timely, reliable, verifiable and comparable system-wide and entity-level data.

The biennial report contains a United Nations system-wide presentation of revenues, expenses, approved budgets, collection of assessed contributions and working capital funds. The report also includes a snapshot on the distribution of extrabudgetary resources by country, organization and donor type. The report is published biennially in PDF version, however the statistics are also available on the CEB website.

This page also contains Tables 2A, 5 and 6 which are extracts from the biennial report. The primary data for the listed tables are included here to ease further analysis.
