Evaluation of the Resource Mobilization Strategy 2012-2015

The Resource Mobilization Strategy 2012 - 2015 is a response to UNRWA's unstable financial situation.  It provides a strategic approach to financial concerns expressed in UNRWA‟s Medium Term Strategy 2010 - 2015.  The evaluation of the Resource Mobilization Strategy 2012 - 2015 provides accountability of the strategic approach as well as inform the drafting of the next Resource Mobilization Strategy.  

The extraordinarily difficult financial situation of UNRWA in 2015 is the result of chronic underfunding. Increasing competition for scarce funding, economic downturn in major financing economies and volatility of exchange rates has resulted in a critically adverse funding environment. However the report findings show that further funding opportunities and partnership development have not been fully explored, though the implementation of the RMS was done with a limited amount of resources. Despite currency instabilities triggered the Agency financial crisis, UNRWA has modestly increased contributions to its General Fund.
