UN Documentation: UN Budget, 2020-

Resolutions on the Programme Budget

While resolutions can be adopted on any aspect of the programme planning, budget, and financing, at any time during the budget cycle, some recurrent patterns can be seen in the documentation.

The three main titles for programme budget resolutions, 1974-2019, have been:

  • Programme budget for the biennium ...
    • A. Budget appropriations for the biennium ... 
    • B. Income estimates for the biennium ... 
    • C. Financing of appropriations for the biennium ... 
  • Questions relating to the programme budget for the biennium...
  • Special subjects relating to the programme budget for the biennium ...

For each biennium, there are usually 3 resolutions with the title "Programme budget for the biennium ..."

  • First, the budget approved before the start of the biennium; has parts A-C
  • Second, revised budget at the end of the first year of the biennium; has parts A-C
  • Third, the final budget at the end of the biennium; has parts A-B

Search results in the UN Digital Library for General Assembly resolutions with "Programme budget for the" in the title.

The table below lists all the resolutions setting the programme budget, 1946-present.

As the budget cycle changes, beginning with the Proposed Programme Budget for the year 2020, we will update the guide to reflect the new pattern of documentation.
