Finances

In 2019, CATIE maintained a positive balance with a net result of USD 15,937.00. Our institution bases its accounting on IFRS (International Financial Reporting Standards). A new standard (number 16) was added to IFRS this year,
which is related to leases and the rental contracts for facilities in our headquarters and country offices.

 

Thanks to the favorable results obtained, CATIE received a sum of USD 187,858.00 related to pending contributions. In addition, and through coordination with country representatives or liaisons in member countries a recovery of country quotas of USD 842,374.00 was also achieved.

 

Moreover, during 2019 IICA contributed with USD 1,000,000.00, which represented 100% of its contribution to CATIE. This was vital for achieving healthy financial environment during 2019.

 

Finally, with the injection of resources from Fundatrópicos, commercial activities have also been supported. Other actions like the implementation of solar panels in the Gilberto Páez building have represented a significant reduction in electricity bills and consequently an increase in insitutional savings.
