Performance Goal 3.2.1: Multilateral Engagement Performance Goal Statement: By 2022, U.S. contributions as a percentage of total funding support for international organizations are reduced below 2017 levels. (State) Performance Goal Overview/Progress Update The President’s National Security Strategy directs the United States to continue to lead and engage in the multilateral arrangements that shape many of the rules that affect American interests and values. It recognizes competition for influence in these institutions, and the need for the United States to remain engaged to shape developments consistent with political and security outcomes that are positive for the country. As the United States prioritizes efforts in organizations that serve American interests, the United States will require accountability and emphasize shared responsibility among members. The United States will seek greater burden sharing across international organizations, with the goal of decreasing the percentage of total funding provided by the U.S.
7 The scales of assessment are not renegotiable until 2019, so the United States will continue to be assessed at 28.4 percent in FY 2018
Indicator Analysis The effort to achieve agreement in the General Assembly to a 25 percent ceiling in the UN peacekeeping scale of assessments was unsuccessful. Despite repeated calls for increased burden sharing and less dependence on a single major contributor for such a large proportion of the financing for UN peacekeeping, other UN member states proved unwilling to contribute more than they would under the existing methodology. The U.S. assessment rate will be 27.9 percent for 2019 through 2021.
