Do we know enough about the various forms of earmarked funding arrangements to inform decisionmaking? What positive and negative marks have three decades of earmarked contributions left on the UN development system (UNDS)? What challenges do donors face in managing earmarked funding? And what perspectives on the earmarking conundrum at the UNDS are helpful in identifying entry points for reform? This contribution provides some answers to these questions, drawing on findings from a broader study on earmarking in the multilateral development system.
