3.2.2 Foreign assistance contribution

Of the 37 countries mentioned in Table 8-1, 12 contributed bilateral and multilateral financial assistance of approximately US$50 million (see Table 8-2). It is interesting to note that the amount of foreign assistance contributed by these 12 countries varies widely. Countries like France or Portugal contributed 1% of their total PGRFA conservation expenditures, whereas countries like Switzerland, Canada, and Austria contributed 47%, 69%, and 99%, respectively. Although the results might be biased as a result of the insufficient data, they do show the different levels of international commitment from the various countries.
