Resources and Funding

All UNFPA funding is voluntary. UNFPA mobilizes financial resources from governments and other partners to support programmes that aim to achieve the "three zeros" – zero unmet need for family planning, zero preventable maternal deaths, and zero harmful practices and gender-based violence – and accelerate progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.

Core resources are contributions without restrictions. Every success, every result, starts with core funding. UNFPA, with unique expertise and extensive presence in more than 150 programme countries, including in crisis situations, uses core funding to effectively provide essential sexual and reproductive health services to those most in need.
 
Core resources enable global reach and reduce transaction costs. They allow UNFPA to focus on programmatic impact, leverage additional resources for greater results and maintain its ability to have a universal presence, even in fragile contexts such as in conflict zones or in refugee situations. Every year, UNFPA launches a campaign to mobilize core resources from a diverse group of donors.
 
As of 30 May 2021, the number of UNFPA Core Contributors is 52. UNFPA's target is 110 donors by end of year. 

Why core funding matters

 
 
Non-core resources include the following funding and financing instruments:
 

Other resources include consolidated global financing mechanisms and innovative financing models and instruments such as blended finance, impact investment bonds, financial and insurance products, social entrepreneurship, debt swaps and guarantees.

Successful sustainable development also requires dynamic and inclusive strategic partnerships.
