The expenditure figures presented in the chart provide a comparative snapshot on the value of activities carried out by the organizations of the UN system. These figures are extracted from the latest available audited financial statements of the relevant organizations. Most refer to the biennium 2008-2009, with the exception of UN Peacekeeping Operations (1 July 2007 to 30 June 2009). 

Expenditure originates from regular resources, as well as trust funds, technical cooperation, and other non regular resources. Expenditure in-kind is included. Amounts originally in currencies other than USD have been translated using either the exchange rate indicated in the relevant financial statement or, otherwise, an exchange rate obtained as an averag of the UN official rates for the period. 

The significant value of programme expenditure incurred by executing or implementing agencies on behalf of the funding organization could not be isolated. Amounts are therefore shown as appearing in the total expenditure line of the financial statements, without further manipulation.
