Donor Government Funding for Family Planning in 2020
Totals represent funding specifically designated by donor governments for family planning as defined by the OECD DAC (see methodology), and include: standalone family planning projects; family planning-specific contributions to multilateral organizations (e.g., contributions to UNFPA Supplies); and, in some cases, projects that include family planning within broader reproductive health activities.
U.K. official development assistance (ODA) is directly tied by law to the gross national income (GNI). Therefore, a decline in the U.K. GNI in 2020 resulted in a subsequent decline in ODA. For more information see “Reduction in the UK’s 0.7 percent ODA target”, June 2021.

This year’s report also includes an update to the methodology for reporting U.S. funding totals (see methodology for more information).
Includes core-contributions from members of the OECD DAC only; core contributions from non-DAC donors are not included in this total.

In 2016, US contributions to UNFPA had totaled US$69 million, including US$30.7 million in core resources and an additional US$38.3 million in non-core resources for other project activities. (See KFF’s “UNFPA Funding & Kemp-Kasten: An Explainer.”).
Includes funding from 29 DAC member countries and the European Union (EU).
In 2020, UNFPA spent approximately US$451.6 million (42.3% of UNFPA’s total programme expenses) on family planning activities (US$76.6 million from core resources and US$375.0 million from non-core resources). This includes US$297.6 million for family-planning specific activities such as enabling environments for family planning, contraceptives and related supplies, provision of services and family planning systems strengthening, and US$154.0 million for activities with an impact on family planning results in other areas of work under UNFPA’s mandate. Direct communication, UNFPA, October 2021.
At this time, it is unclear whether future core contributions from Germany will continue at the 2020 amount.
