Undp income remained unchanged from 2005, at $5.1 billion. Total expenditure for all programme activities and support costs in 2006 was $4.8 billion, compared to $4.4 billion the previous year. Technical cooperation funded through other sources included $48.7 million provided through the programme executed by the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs, $191.2 million through the United Nations Fund for International Partnerships (unfip), and $25.6 million through the United Nations Capital Development Fund (uncdf).
