The UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) prepares a Biennial Programme Budget (PDF), broken down into annual budgets based on globally assessed needs. UNHCR displays financial information and updates on its website (reporting.unhcr.org/financial) but not as open data.

Although UNHCR publishes a wide variety of data on situations and refugee populations on it's data portal (API), UNCHR does not publish data on its programmes or projects in IATI.


UNHCR is not a member of IATI. However, a portion of UNHCR's funding received for its programmes under inter-agency response plans are included in the financial tracking system managed by the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), which is in turn reports to the IATI.


UNHCR publishes procurement contract awards as separate annual PDF files. UNHCR's public notices and contract awards are also published on United Nations Global Marketplace (UNMG). The information not published as machine readable open data.
