UN Funding by Country 2024

The United Nations is only able to remain functional because there are lots of members that contribute to its budget. That being said, the United Nations is the brainchild of the United States. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that the United States is responsible for contributing a large chunk of its budget. Overall, the United States is responsible for contributing 28 percent of the budget to the United Nations, even though there are hundreds of countries that are considered members of the United Nations.

China is also responsible for a large percentage of the budget of the United Nations, and it is responsible for contributing approximately 15 percent of the overall budget. Japan, Germany, and the United Kingdom round out the top five. Japan is responsible for contributing about 8.5 percent of the United Nations' budget, while Germany and the United Kingdom each contribute about six percent.

Which Countries Currently Owe the United Nations Money?

There are several countries that owe the United Nations money. These countries include Antigua and Barbados, Comoros, the Republic of the Congo, Iran, Guinea, Papua New Guinea, South Tomei and Principe, Venezuela, Vanuatu, and Sudan. These countries are responsible for contributing money to the United Nations, even if it is a relatively small percentage of the UN budget, but they are behind. As identified in the letter published by the Secretary General, these countries are responsible for contributing money to the United Nations, and they are behind on their contributions.

Has Any Country Ever Been Kicked Out of the United Nations?

No, no country has ever been kicked out of the United Nations. Therefore, it is unlikely that any country will be kicked out of the United Nations purely because they have fallen behind on their dues. At the same time, there are some countries that have voluntarily decided to withdraw from the United Nations. For example, in 1965, Indonesia decided to withdraw from the United Nations. It withdrew from the United Nations because Malaysia was elected as a non-permanent member of the Security Council. Indonesia was very frustrated by this, lost faith in the United Nations, and decided to withdraw.

What Does the United Nations Do With the Money it Gets?

The United Nations is responsible for orchestrating a wide variety of operations around the world. It cannot do so without funding from the individual member states. For example, the United Nations is responsible for numerous peacekeeping operations. The United Nations also has to send emissaries to various locations in an effort to orchestrate peace treaties. Furthermore, the United Nations is also responsible for the World Health Organization, which requires a significant amount of money to make sure people in developing countries have access to the resources they need. There are even situations where the World Health Organization is responsible for orchestrating operations in developed countries, particularly during times of crisis. That is why funding is so critical.
