India’s contribution to UN Women

Jane Martinson writes in The Guardian on financial support, or the lack of it, for the (new) UN body, UN Women. The post is specifically about the UK’s slow response to UN Women’s call for support, with the country having made neither pledges nor contributions.

But what’s interesting is that India is, as of today, the 16th highest contributor to the UN Women’s Core Funds, having pledged (and released) USD 1,021,043. That’s approx 4.5 crores.

Take a look at the list of pledges here.
