United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)

By decision of its Executive Board, UNDP has a goal of ensuring that 60 per cent of core resources are allocated to LDCs.

Core resources are voluntary contributions by Member States, distributed to programme countries based on the so-called Target for Resource Assignment from the Core (TRAC) system. According to this system, every programme country receives a certain minimum amount of guaranteed funding from the core budget, called TRAC 1. This amount is determined by a distribution methodology established by the Executive Board of the UNDP and takes into account a country’s gross national product per person and its population size.

In 2014-2017, 61% of UNDP´s core resources went to LDCs.
