Between 2009 and 2013, the Office of the Special Representative of the Secretary-General on Violence against children was solely funded from voluntary contributions.
In December 2013, through its resolution 68/246, the General Assembly included the SRSG Office under the UN regular budget.
To consolidate knowledge and enhance the impact and outreach of its work, the Office continues to mobilize extra-budgetary resources / voluntary contributions to accelerate progress in children's protection from violence.
