The Government of Netherlands has given over EUR 7.8 million (US $ 8.4 m) to the United Nations Human Settlements Programme within the framework of a two year Partnership Programme. This increase in funding, from one of its major donors, explicitly recognises the success of UN-HABITAT's work in implementing the Habitat Agenda. At the same time, the Dutch Government has more than doubled its annual contribution from EUR 453,780 to EUR 1.3 m (US $ 1.4 m) from 2003 onwards.
