Chapter Summary

The &t;Geneva Group&t; is an informal grouping of the largest budgetary contributors to the United Nations. The Geneva Group was founded in 1964 at the initiative of the USA and the United Kingdom, at a time when the membership of the UN had increased dramatically, as had the regular budgets. These developments made closer cooperation seem imperative to the larger contributors in order to limit the increase in assessed contributions and thus the financial burden of the Geneva Group members, and to ensure that the funds available were used in the most efficient way possible. The Geneva Group is organized at the following three levels: The level of the Directors-General for UN Affairs in the members' Foreign Ministries; The Geneva Group General (GGG) at the level of Ambassadors to the UN specialized agencies in Geneva; and the Local Geneva Groups at all United Nations offices.

Keywords: budgetary contributors; Geneva Group; Geneva Group General (GGG); United Nations
