Funding for Other Resources (regular)
UNICEF relies on voluntary contributions to uphold our mission of reaching every child.
Other Resources (regular) are contributions earmarked by UNICEF donors for specific purposes, including for a country, geographic area, theme, project, sector or any other category agreed upon by UNICEF and the donor. Reserved for non-emergency programmes and UNICEF strategic priorities, these funds give donors greater involvement in programming, and enable clear and concise monitoring and reporting of results and cost-effectiveness.
Other Resources (regular) may be contributed via several funding modalities:
- UN inter-organizational arrangements and Thematic Funding
- Global Programme Partnerships, which help to address transnational issues and improve aid effectiveness
- International Financial Institutions, such as the World Bank
In 2021, earmarked contributions to UNICEF amounted to US$3.73 billion. Yemen, Afghanistan and Lebanon were the top three countries to receive earmarked funds for an emergency response or a specific programme.
