ICSU’s principal source of ‘core’ income is dues from Members and a subvention from the host country France. The other major sources of income are grants from various organizations and foundations. The General Assembly approves draft budgets for the next triennium upon proposals received from the Executive Board, which is charged with finalizing the annual budgets. After consideration by the Committee on Finance and the Executive Board, the audited annual accounts are sent to all Members for approval. The ICSU Regional Offices are mainly supported by their host countries, with some funding from ICSU and other sources.
