Voluntary contributions from government partners and the European Union (EU) are vital to our work, accounting for almost 90% of our annual income.    

As of 31 December 2021, our three largest partners were the United States of America, the European Union and Germany, while our largest government partners of unearmarked funds were Norway, Sweden, United Kingdom, Netherlands and Denmark. Unearmarked funding provides the backbone of UNHCR’s activities on a global scale, allowing us to respond to emergencies as they happen and enabling us to stay and deliver long after the headlines have faded.
