Over the last three years the UK has contributed between 7.8 and 8.1% towards the costs of UN Peacekeeping. Assessed contributions to UN peacekeeping missions are paid in US Dollars.

Our sterling costs for those missions covered in the question, over the last three UK financial years, are as follows:

2007-08 2008-09 2009-10
MONUC (Democratic Republic of Congo) 39,728,447 49,272,772 61,892,423
MINURCAT (Chad/Central African Republic) 5,771,218 18,153,470 29,474,421
UNAMID (Darfur) 37,228,728 55,229,550 68,961,432
UNMIL (Liberia) 25,403,196 25,324,767 25,687,061
UNMIS (Sudan 28,920,533 29,807,091 40,761,445
UNOCI (Cote D'Ivoire) 15,184,311 19,968,023 23,775,607

The figures for 2009-10 are estimates, as we cannot confirm final figures until the Foreign and Commonwealth Office's resource accounts are closed. These figures do not include any bilateral assistance or training to troop- contributing countries.
