Results, Budget and Performance

In October 2021, the Member States of WIPO approved the Program of Work and Budget for the upcoming 2022/23 biennium.  WIPO is unusual among UN organizations in that we are almost entirely self-financing. 

In our Program of Work and Budget for the 2022/23 biennium, we estimate that our overall income will reach over 950 million Swiss francs, and that our expenditure will amount to about 794 million Swiss francs.  Of our overall income, approximately 95 per cent will come from the fee-paid services which we provide to users of the international systems through the PCT, Madrid and Hague Systems.

Results Based Management

We use Results Based Management at WIPO to place performance at the heart of how we operate. Results Based Management guides the way we plan, manage, report and – very importantly – how we learn lessons to improve our future planning.

Every two years, WIPO's Director General presents a Program of Work and Budget to Member States for approval.
