United Nations financing and programming

The overall financial situation of the United Nations during 2001 was significantly more positive than for a number of years, reflecting higher aggregate cash, lower unpaid assessments and reduced debt owed by the Organization to Member States. Unpaid assessments were 7 per cent lower than in 2000, at $2,106 million, and amounts due to Member States for troops and contingentowned equipment, at $748 million, were down 18 per cent from 2000.
