Four main classes of non-state donors have been identified for organizations reporting their contributions:
A) European Commission – as a largest non-state donor, and in line with FAFA requirements, a separate category is dedicated to EC; B) 5 major non state donors from “UN system organizations, World Bank, IMF and development banks”; C) 5 major non-state donors from “other International Organizations, NGOs, foundations, private companies, other entities”; D) All remaining non-state donors other than the EC or the 5 major donors in categories B and C.
This classification allows:
1) to distinguish the main donors of XB resources among different categories of organizations; 2) to analyse the level of concentration/fragmentation of contributions from non-state donors; e.g. some UN system organizations receive resources from few major donors, while others have many donors providing relatively smaller amounts of resources.
XB Resources from Non-State Donors - UN System
Biennia 2002/03 - 2008/09, Millions of USD
The graph presents the XB contributions received by UN system organizations over the four biennia period from “non-state donors”, broadly defined as subjects that are not member states. The XB resources donated by non-state donors constantly increased over this period. Total recorded contributions to UN system soared from USD 4.4 billion in 2002-2003 to USD 9.6 billion in 2008-2009. The XB funding experienced a notable 50.4% increase from non-state donors between 2002-2003 and 2004-2005. A further growth at an average of some 20% per biennium was recoreded for 2006-2007 and 2008-2009.
