Luxembourg's strategic contribution to the ILO
Luxembourg 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. Between 2015 and 2018, Luxembourg provided more than US$ 1 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. From 2015 to 2018, total voluntary un-earmarked contributions amounted to US$ 4.2 million.
- Voluntary, non-core funding contributions provided as earmarked funds for priority programmes and projects in addition to assessed contributions. Voluntary earmaked contributions from Luxembourg to the ILO in the period 2015-2018 amounted to US$ 7.5 million.
