We’re building a new UNICEF.org.
As we swap out old for new, pages will be in transition. Thanks for your patience – please keep coming back to see the improvements.

Public Partnerships

Other resources regular

Other Resources Regular (ORR) are earmarked funds, received for a specific programme purpose – at global, regional and country levels – or strategic priority. ORR are allocated to fund development activities as outlined in country programmes approved by the UNICEF Executive Board.

ORR contributions

ORR can be contributed through the following funding modalities:

  • Thematic funding
  • Pooled funding and trust funds
  • Global Programme Partnerships (see below)
  • International Financial Institutions


"Thematic ORR" are pooled funds to support the achievement of results in one of the seven thematic funding areas of the 2014–17 Strategic Plan or the cross-cutting areas humanitarian action - described as "Thematic ORE" - or gender. "Non-thematic" are all other earmarked resources contributed to UNICEF programmes.

Global Programme Partnerships (GPPs)

GPPs have long been part of the development architecture, and recently become a key institutional instrument to deliver global public goods and focus response to global challenges. UNICEF has historically played an important role in shaping and co-managing GPPs, contributing through its convening power and extensive global, regional country presence with operational and technical capacities at all levels. UNICEF also works with GPPs to address transnational issues, such as negotiating prices of essential commodities with industries, to leverage greater aid effectiveness.
