Problem

Inadequate funding of international programmes

Other Names:
Reduction in multilateral aid expenditure
Shortfall in aid to international organizations
Nature:
Projects and ongoing programmes of international organizations are impaired by budget limitations. Organizational income is too low to initiate and carry-through to completion necessary work, due to: delinquent payment, non-payment and under-payment of membership assessments; political decisions by member states to limit general fund contributions or not to support specific projects; and lack of other income generating possibilities.
Counter Claim:
International organizations propose enormous budgets for an endless variety of programmes only to perpetuate themselves. Their wastage of funds is also high. For essential work their funds are adequate if they would eliminate mismanagement, over-staffing and empire-building.
