    DGs Preliminary Proposals - Draft 39 C/5

  • The DG proposes the following two scenarios for the RP (assessedcontribution) ceiling for the 39 C/5;

    Option 1: $653 million with an expenditure plan of $507 million:Zero Nominal Growth level of the 38 C/5 assessed contributionportion For this scenario, with a $507M expenditure plan, the Organization would have to

    absorb $14.4M in real terms as compared to the current 38 C/5 $518Mexpenditure plan for which the ZRG level is $521.4 million. Under the currentsituation this would be extremely difficult.

    Option 2: $667 million with an expenditure plan of $518million. In this scenario, we would have to absorb $3.4M in real terms as compared with

    todays $518M expenditure plan.

    In addition, UNESCO needs to absorb new/additional costs (e.g. $3.2 million for UN ResidentCoordinator system, $1.2 million for Security and Safety Action Plan, and up to $2.0 million of RPactivity budget for evaluations).

    The DG further notes that it would be very helpful, if a clear singleceiling for the assessed contribution together with clearprogramme priorities are determined by Member States at thisstage. UNESCO/ 10
