Contributions from the UN Regular Budget (section 22 and 34), which are detailed below, are not distributed on a yearly basis but under yearly allotments and are analysed on the basis of yearly expenditures. Regarding UNDP contributions and contributions from One United Nations Pilot Funds and other Multi donor Trust Funds (MDTFs), amounts received correspond to yearly expenditures (see below) due to the specific rules applying to the disbursement of these funds.
 
It is to be noted that in the case of contributions to trust funds from bilateral donors, UN system organizations (with the exception of UNDP and MDTF/One UN funds) and other international donors, annual contributions do not correspond to annual expenditures as in many cases contributions are for activities to be carried out over a number of years.  
 
 
Expenditures and Allocation of technical cooperation resources

 

Overall expenditures that finance UNCTAD technical cooperation fall under four main categories - trust funds, UNDP, multi donor trust funds (MDTF) and One UN funds and the United Nations regular budget which include (section 22 and 34 and associate experts). In 2011 these expenditures remained stable at $ 39.1 million. Trust funds expenditures continue to be the major source of disbursement for UNCTAD technical cooperation, accounting in 2011 for 91.8 per cent of total expenditures for UNCTAD's operational activities (see table 1).
