Our Donors

The UN-REDD Programme depends entirely on voluntary funds. A number of donors contributed to the Programme during its 2008-2015 phase, with the Government of Norway providing a significant portion of the funds.

Other donors included the governments of the European Commission, Denmark, Japan, Luxembourg, Spain, and Switzerland.

 

Become a Donor

The Programme encourages more donors to contribute, preferably by providing flexible and predictable funds that allow for long-term planning and the full implementation of activities. However, contributions to specific outcomes and/or countries are also welcome.

The UN-REDD Programme 2016-2020 Strategic Framework, along with Annual Programme Progress Reports, demonstrate the value and quality of the UN-REDD Programme, and serve as a basis for discussion with current and new donors concerning possible partnerships.  

The UN-REDD Programme operates on the principles of joint programming of the UN Development Group (UNDG) and utilizes the UN Multi-Partner Trust Fund, where funds received from donors are pooled and implementation is the responsibility of the three participating UN organizations, applying the pass-through modality.

Furthermore, the Programme is guided by the five inter-related principles of the UNDG:

  • Adopting a Human-Rights Based Approach (HRBA) to programming, with particular reference to the UNDG guidelines on Indigenous Peoples’ issues;

  • Promoting gender equality;

  • Enhancing environmental sustainability;

  • Using results-based management; and

  • Undertaking capacity development.
