Denmark's strategic contribution to the ILO
Denmark funds the ILO through:
- Assessed contributions paid by all ILO Member States by virtue of their membership, which constitute the ILO’s core funding or regular budget. In 2015-2018, Denmark’s assessed contributions to the ILO’s regular budget exceeded US$ 9.3 million.
- Voluntary core funding contributions provided by eight ILO donors as a pool of un-earmarked, flexible resources allocated by the ILO to strategic areas and emerging priorities. In 2015-2018, Denmark contributed with over US$ 8.6 million
- Voluntary, non-core funding contributions provided as earmarked funds for priority programmes and projects in addition to assessed contributions. In 2015-2018 Sweden contributed over US$ 14.9 million.
