ICCROM’s Programme Budget is financed through a mix of contributions from Member States and voluntary contributions from public and private entities. Assessed contributions, or mandatory contribution from governments who are Member States of ICCROM, are calculated on the basis of the scale of assessment used by the United Nations since 2008. Voluntary contributions are the most important source of funding after Member States’ assessed contributions. These contributions are earmarked according to agreements with donors, with project budgets sometimes covering several years. They consist of bilateral contributions for specific projects or programmes. These earmarked funds are used for bilaterally or multilaterally funded projects whose goals and outcomes fall within the scope of ICCROM’s Strategic Framework.
