16 years of Zero Nominal Growth Expanded initiatives & requirements WMO DRR, LDCs & Space Programmes Unexpected oversight & audit requirements Additional language requirements Staff level essentially unchanged Expanded costs Expanded EC membership & activities Expanded UN inter-agency coordination UN-wide payroll adjustments 10-year WMO building maintenance Increased travel costs (staff and non-staff) Alleviation measures adopted Enlarged efficiency, automation & outsourcing
ZNG impacts UN organizations increase in assessed contribution 1996-2009 Reduction in published titles Reductions in: Duration of meetings Published titles Travel support to Members Technical assistance Delays in production of mandatory WMO pubs.
