Our Funding and Delivery

Where our money comes from and what we spend it on?

UNDP funds generally come from Regular (or Core resources) as well as Non Core. Depending on the APL (Authorized Programming Levels) agreed and set for Ghana, regular resources, commonly known as TRAC (Target for Resource Assignment from the Core) are allocated for the country office for a particular programming cycle (such as 2006 -2010).

Non-core resources on the other hand comprise other funds including C/S (cost sharing), contributions from bilaterals, multilaterals, UNDP TTFs (Thematic Trust Funds) and other UN agencies.

In recent years, various donors who have supported our work immensely for very important development work include Government of Ghana, Japan, Sweden, Netherlands, Norway, Denmark, DFID (Department for International Development), EU (European Union), SOROS Foundation, The Prem Rawat Foundation, GEF (Global Environmental Fund), Montreal Protocol and Microsoft Corporation.

UN Resident Coordinator's Annual Report

In 2013, the work of the UNCT was significantly impacted by the opposition rejection of results emanating from the December 2012 Presidential Elections. The main opposition party took this dispute to the Supreme Court and the case was eventually concluded in August 2013 confirming once again Ghana’s democratic dividend and stability.
