Revenue by Contributor Type


This page shows data on contributions received by contributor (donor) across the UN system. The data has been categorized into 9 contributor types.  The contributor types used are aligned with those used in the IATI standard, although IATI contains a more granular breakdown of government, NGO and private sector types.

This data includes funding from government and other-public contributors such as the European Commission, the UN Inter-agency pooled funds, the Global vertical funds, and the International Financial Institutions; as well as funding from non-state actors such as Non-governmental organizations (NGOs), Public Private Partnerships, Foundations, and Academic & Research institutions.

Entities such as International Financial Institutions, global vertical funds, UN organizations and transfers from UN interagency pooled funds are included under the ‘Multilateral’ category.

Standard VI. Reporting on revenue by contributor - provides guidance on reporting contributions received by contributor (donor).
