UNU WIDER-Institute annual contribution


Research of the global development issues, obligations of the Host Government Agreement and support for the research programme. The role of the UNU WIDER is to generate new knowledge, enhance individual and institutional capacities, and disseminate useful information to decision makers in developing countries, donor community and academia. The current UNU-WIDER research programme for 2014-2018 focuses research on the triple challenge of structural transformation, inclusion and sustainability. Cutting across the entire research programme are three high-priority concerns: Africa's inclusive growth, gender equity, and development financing/aid effectiveness. The research programme focuses on themes that are at the core of the new Agenda 2030 for sustainable development. The UNU-WIDER budget for 2015 was around USD 9,8 million. The funding consists of core contributions of the four donor countries, income from the Endowment Fund and project funding. The Finnish core contribution to UNU-WIDER is 1,4 million euros. Other main donors are Sweden and Great Britain. The Department for Development Co-operation within the MFA administers the Finnish co-operation with UNU-WIDER.
