Funding numbers for the UNHCR 2019

Map of the Month 02/2020

In February 2020, the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) published the funding numbers for 2019. The US remains by far the biggest donor, followed by the EU and Germany. Per capita however, some countries are contributing even more than Germany or the US, i.a. Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Luxembourg - as well as Kuwait and Qatar. In the EU, there are remarkable differences regarding the financial engagement for the UNHCR (both in absolute as well as in per capita-terms).

You can find the complete numbers here.
