View StatisticsShow Statistical Information
AbstractThis working paper provides information on the implementation status of Programme Budget 2012–2013. It covers both technical and financial aspects of implementation. The initial section of the paper provides an overview of progress towards the achievement of office-specific expected results as determined during the mid-term review and the change in their status as per the update carried out in May 2013. It also provides the results of an informal internal assessment of the Organization-wide expected results that reflect major financial outlay by the South-East Asia Region. The latter part of the paper deals with financial implementation up to 31 May 2013. The approved budget for the South-East Asia Region for 2012–2013 is US$ 384.2 million and the revised budget is US$ 417.8 million. Operational budget as per approved workplans is US$ 410.5 million, of which 88% is funded (assessed contribution (AC) resources of US$ 98.1 million and voluntary contribution (VC) resources of US$ 265.8 million). The overall implementation rate against budget is 54%. The paper discusses the uneven distribution of resources across countries as well as across technical areas, i.e. strategic objectives (SOs). While India and Nepal country programmes have mobilized resources in excess of 90% of their budgeted amounts, funds have been mobilized to support less than 60% of the budgets for the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and Sri Lanka. Similarly, a review of technical areas reveals that SO1 and SO7 have already received funds up to 97% and 105% of their budgets respectively, while at the same time SO5 and SO6 show levels of resources lower than 60% of the budgeted figures. The Sixth Meeting of the Subcommittee on Policy and Programme Development and Management (SPPDM) held from 4 to 5 July 2013, reviewed the attached working paper and made the following recommendations: Actions by Member States (1) To work with the WHO Representatives to ensure close collaboration that will lead to enhanced financial implementation of objectives. (2) To work with WHO Representatives to ensure that resource mobilization efforts are targeted to respond to the agreed priorities within the WHO country workplans. Actions by WHO-SEARO (1) To distribute the most current financial implementation status, split by budget centre and strategic objective, to delegates of the Sixty-sixth Session of the Regional Committee. (2) For WHO Representatives and the Regional Office to work with respective Member States to ensure the resource shortfalls in the WHO workplans are understood, and joint efforts are sought to fill them. The working paper and the SPPDM recommendations are submitted to the Sixty-sixth Session of the Regional Committee for its consideration.
