Where our money comes from and what we spend it on?
Saudi Arabia is a net contributor country.
For UNDP, net contributor countries represent a special group that combines the principle of inclusiveness with the United Nations and the principle of hierarchy: all countries are eligible to participate in UNDP programs, but high-income countries are affected by the resource reduction policies that can be provided by the United Nations Development Program . The five net contributor countries of the Arab States - Bahrain, Kuwait, the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates - are adapting to rapidly changing internal and external environments. Internally, all five countries have recently seen fast-growing economies coinciding with moves towards greater political openness. At the same time, it had to adapt to the past march of globalization and to challenge its role in this new external environment. This changing context means that WFP's relationship with these countries must also evolve.
