  • In 2003, a total of USD 2.5 billion is the minimum needed  to make commitments to high-quality proposals anticipated in Rounds Two and Three. This requires USD 1.6 billion of new pledges and payments in addition to payment of outstanding pledges for 2002 (equal to 90 million) and current pledges for 2003 (equal to 305 million).
  • In 2004, approximately USD 3.8 billion is needed  to make new commitments to high-quality proposals anticipated in Rounds Four and Five. New pledges of USD 3.5 billion are required in addition to payment of current pledges earmarked for 2004 (equal to 305 million).
