The data used in the tables and figures for the United Nations resource flows is primarily drawn from the following sources:
  • The UN system Chief Executive Board for Coordination (CEB), which collects and publishes on its website data from the 43 UN entities that have committed to collectively reporting their data. To further explore the data, visit Financial Statistics | United Nations - CEB (unsceb.org).
  • The UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA), whose dataset is based on the CEB dataset but only includes data on the UN development system, which constitutes the UN operational activities for development segment. The DESA data is contained in an annex to the annual report of the Secretary-General on the implementation of the QCPR process. To further explore the data, visit The 2022 Operational Activities for Development Segment | Economic and Social Council.
  • The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), which provides data on the sources and uses of official development assistance (ODA), defined by the OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC) as ‘government aid that promotes and specifically targets the economic development and welfare of developing countries’. To further explore the data, visit Official Development Assistance (ODA) - OECD.
  • The UN Pooled Funds Database, which collects disaggregated data on UN inter-agency pooled funds.
