Financials

UNHCR prepares a Biennial Programme Budget, broken down into annual budgets based on globally assessed needs. The original programme budget is presented to UNHCR’s main governing body, the Executive Committee (ExCom), prior to the start of the biennium. Needs are re-assessed during the biennium and a revised budget is presented to ExCom for approval in October of each year. The current budget may be adjusted for unforeseen needs that arise in the course of the year by means of supplementary budgets. The final budget from the previous year is presented to ExCom’s Standing Committee at its June/July meeting each year.

The financial information displayed on this website is subject to frequent updates and may vary from the information published in governance documents presented to the Executive Committee and its Standing Committee at their formal meetings throughout the year.
