Trust funds

Funds earmarked for specific programmes within the UN system. The current Trust funds are the Trust Fund for the Core Budget of the Convention, Trust Fund for Participation in the Convention Process, Trust Fund for Supplementary Activities (such as public awareness, capacity building, inter-sessional workshops and activities related to the Kyoto Protocol), and Trust Fund for the Special Annual Contribution of the Government of Germany (mainly for supporting conferences and other meetings in Bonn). The Trust funds recieve (voluntary) contributions from the Parties to the Convention. For the Trust Fund for Supplementary Activities Parties often earmark their contributions for specific projects.
