A significant development in 2015was the signing of a multi-year grant agreement for unrestricted funding for the period 2015-2018 with the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) for a total of 50 million Swedish Krona (approximately 5.4 million euro). This allowed IDLO to broaden its unrestricted donor base and to receive, in July 2015, a first installment of 1.062 million euro from Sida, which then unlocked an additional 1 million euro in matching and unrestricted funding from the Netherlands. The same processis envisaged to occur in 2016, in accordance with the provisions of IDLO’s grant agreements with Sida and the Government of the Netherlands.

Another significant developmentwas a major increase in unrestricted funding from the Government of Italy, which provided close to 1 million euro in additional funding, compared to 2014.

Unrestricted and soft-earmarked revenues reached a total of 9.3 million euro, representing an increase of 30.2% on 2014.

IDLO’s main donors for bi-lateral program revenue, amounting to 27.2 million euro, were the United States of America, the European Union, Denmark and the Netherlands, as well as the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).
