Funding

To date, the IIIM has received pledges for around 14.5 million USD for 2018, which corresponds to the estimated budget for the current year; of this amount, the Mechanism has already received almost 8 million USD. Besides the cost of recruiting staff, IIIM needs to invest part of the funds currently available to acquire the necessary IT infrastructure, including state-of-the-art software, and to reinforce the security of our premises. UNOG has just confirmed that the IIIM can remain in its current premises for two years at least, which is a good news and something IIIM has been advocating for.
Financial sustainability is key to allowing the Mechanism to carry out its mandate and to guarantee its independence. The Head of IIIM strongly hopes that when the right time comes, and as envisaged by the General Assembly, States will grant their support to move the Mechanism’s funding from voluntary contributions to the regular UN budget. Until then, it is fundamental that States provide the Mechanism with the funding necessary to carry out its functions.
