QSP Contributions

Resolution I/4 of the ICCM invited Governments in a position to do so, regional economic integration organizations, intergovernmental organizations, the private sector, including industry, foundations, non-governmental organizations and other stakeholders, to contribute to the QSP.

QSP contributions can be separated between donations to the QSP trust fund and in-kind or financial assistance to the non-trust fund QSP.

As provided for in resolution I/4, bilateral and multilateral donors and other entities can make financial or in-kind contributions to the QSP outside of the trust fund.

Non-trust fund contributors to the QSP are encouraged to declare their contributions using the official reporting form

Since its establishment in 2006 through until 2015, the QSP has mobilized approximately US$49 million.
