How is the United Nations funded?

Funding for the UN system remains concentrated among a limited number of donors, with ten Member States providing nearly 50% of the UN’s funding. The United States is the largest contributor by volume but, relative to the size of their respective economies, Norway and Sweden (each contributing approximately 0.3% of their GNI to the UN) stand out. China has emerged as a significant UN contributor and is now among the five top Member State contributors.
