DDVE benefits from core funding from the Human Development Network at a level of $614,000 for Fiscal Year 2010, which covers the period from July 2009 to June 2010.  This core funding includes payment for cross-support services provided by DDVE to regional units within the World Bank in calendar year 2008.  In addition, the unit benefits this fiscal year from an additional allocation of $300,000 to organize the July 2009 meeting of faith and development leaders in Accra and to follow up on The Accra meeting was co-funded by DFID, and also benefited from support from the Guerrand-Hermes Foundation and the Christian Health Association of Ghana. 
 
Apart from core funding from the World Bank budget, DDVE has raised additional resources through the submission of proposals for funding to various trust funds and donors.  Since November 2008, both independently and in collaboration with other World Bank units, DDVE  has raised more than one million US dollars in additional funding for its work among others on (1) service delivery in education and health in Africa; (2) access to and affordability of water and electricity in Africa and South Asia; (2) protecting the poor from the crisis and evaluating cash for work programs in Africa; (3) food security, migration and climate change in Africa and the Middle East; and (4) tools and techniques for targeting social programs to the poor.  Major sources of funding include the Africa Region Country Management Units, the Belgian Poverty Reduction Partnership, the Luxemburg Poverty Reduction Partnership, the Trust Fund for Environmentally and Socially Sustainable Development, and the World Bank Gender Action Plan. 
 
While a majority of this additional funding is directly managed by DDVE for its projects, a substantial part of the funding is managed by other World Bank units that contribute to funding the time of core DDVE team members because they rely on the team’s expertise to contribute to their own work program.  Sources of funding obtained since November 2008 include the following:
 
•  AusAid (for work on infrastructure in South Asia)
•  Africa Region Country Management Units(for work on poverty and social protection in Africa)
•  Belgian Poverty Reduction Partnership (for work on infrastructure in Benin)
•  Danish Consultant Trust Fund (for work on climate change)
•  Education Program Development Fund (for work on education in Ghana)
•  Japanese Consultant Trust Fund (for work on the World Values Survey)
•  Luxemburg Poverty Reduction Partnership (for work on labor markets, poverty mapping, and the  
   economic crisis in Africa)
•  Trust Fund for Environmentally and Socially Sustainable Development (for work on food prices, food
   security, migration and climate change in Africa and the Middle East)
•  Gender Action Plan (for work on time use and infrastructure, and on cash-for work programs).
