Last Updated: Feb 26, 2020     Views: 37947

The General Assembly, on the advice of the Committee on Contributions, determines the amount of money that should be assessed to finance the approved appropriation, which is shared among Member States to pay for the expenses of the Organization. Non-member States are also assessed.

Assessments are made to Member States for the following:

  • Regular budget (2020: ST/ADM/SER.B/1008)
  • International tribunals (2020: ST/ADM/SER.B/1010)
  • Peacekeeping operations (2019-2021 rate of assessment: A/73/350/Add.1). For assessments for individual peacekeeping operations, click on the Peacekeeping operations link below
