Welcome to the United Nations. It's your world.

Peacekeeping operations

The General Assembly, by its resolution 55/235, decided that, beginning in July 2001

“the rates of assessment for peacekeeping operations should be based on the scale of assessments for the regular budget of the United Nations, with an appropriate and transparent system of adjustments based on levels of Member States”.

Under this system, Member States were assigned to one of 10 “levels” to facilitate automatic, predictable movement between categories on the basis of the per capita gross national product (GNP) of Member States.

Discount rates were applied to eight of the different levels based on the parameters set forth in the resolution. Countries in level B are assessed at the same rate as for the regular budget. Member States other than those assigned to levels A, C and J were assigned to levels based on their per capita GNP, subject to transition periods and unless they indicated a decision to move to a higher level. The Member States are indicated in resolutions 55/235 and 55/236.

The five permanent members of the Security Council form a separate level (level A), and all discounts resulting from adjustment to the regular budget assessment rates of Member States in levels C through J are borne on a pro rata basis by the Member States in level A, which are assessed at a higher rate than for the regular budget.

Member States designated as least developed countries are assigned to level J and receive the highest discount percentage i.e., 90 per cent. They therefore pay 10 per cent of their assessment rates established for the regular budget. Countries in level C are specified in resolution 55/235.

General Assembly Resolution 55/236 on voluntary movements in connection with the apportionment of the expenses of United Nations peacekeeping operations also decided that:

...at any time during the scale period, a Member State may make a voluntary commitment to contribute at a higher rate than its current rate by informing the General Assembly through the Secretary-General, and the Assembly may take note of that decision.

By its resolution 58/1 B of 23 December 2003, the General Assembly adopted the scale of assessments for the period 2004 to 2006. The composition of levels of contribution for peacekeeping operations was also changed for the period 2004 to 2006 as contained in the addendum to the report of the Secretary-General (A/58/157/Add.1, annex), and adopted by the Assembly in its resolution 58/256 of 23 December 2003.

By its resolution 61/237 of 22 December 2006, the General Assembly adopted the scale of assessments for the period 2007 to 2009. The composition of levels of contribution for peacekeeping operations was also changed for the period 2007 to 2009 as contained in the addendum to the report of the Secretary-General (A/61/139/Add.1, annex), and adopted by the Assembly in its resolution 61/243 of 22 December 2006.

By its resolution 64/248 of 24 December 2009, the General Assembly adopted the scale of assessments for the period 2010 to 2012. The composition of levels of contribution for peacekeeping operations was also changed for the period 2010 to 2012 as contained in the addendum to the report of the Secretary-General (A/64/220/Add.1, annex), and adopted by the Assembly in its resolution 64/249 of 24 December 2009.

By its resolution 67/238 of 24 December 2012, the General Assembly adopted the scale of assessments for the period 2013 to 2015. The composition of levels of contribution for peacekeeping operations was also changed for the period 2013 to 2015 as contained in the addendum to the report of the Secretary-General (A/67/224/Add.1, annex), and adopted by the Assembly in its resolution 67/239 of 24 December 2012.
