TDR Approved Programme Budget for the 2010-2011 Biennium
This document describes the TDR budget for 2010-2011. This is the second biennium under the new TDR Vision and Strategy1 and the TDR business plan for 2008-20132. The budget is based on the strategic and operational considerations of the overall TDR business plan, and on detailed business plans and budgets for 11 TDR business lines operating under three strategic functions.
Following a short overview of the new TDR strategy below, chapter 2 summarizes key elements of the TDR business plan for 2008 to 2013, including budget projections and justifications for the anticipated budget growth over these six years.
Chapter 3 provides a detailed description of the budget for 2010-2011, including a summary of the activities, end-products and budgets for 11 business lines. A budget scenario is presented for US$ 121 million. This is less than the US$ 146 million projected in the TDR business plan due to the impact of the global financial crisis. The rationale for the prioritization of resources within the business lines is discussed, as are the costs of providing core support to the Programme. Key outputs anticipated from TDR in the 2010-2011 biennium and over the 2008-2013 business plan are also presented.
Chapter 4 summarizes the resource mobilization strategy and planned activities for the biennium.
