When the Global Record project was further endorsed by COFI 2009, the recommended work programme was supported subject to appropriate funding being identified. The project is not part of the FAO's regular programme of work and relies on the generosity of donors. To date, it is the generosity of a few States that has enabled work to progress to this point.

Considerable preparatory and exploratory work has been done, including the Feasibility Study, the work of the Expert Consultation (EC-GR) and the Technical Consultation (TC–GR), to bring the project to the point where it can start to develop and test specific options for the creation and ongoing maintenance of a viable Global Record.

Further contributions are needed and the Project Team will be happy to discuss any potential offer at any time. Donor support can be specifically targeted into those aspects of the project that the donor wishes to support and full budget disclosure will be available.
