The ico-D Friend contribution amount is established by the Executive Board and ratified at the biennial General Assembly.
Friend contribution amounts are determined for each of the three country zones, and are based on per capita (P/C) Gross National Income (GNI) index, as published by the World Bank. Zone classifications and annual adjustments reflect data obtained from the World Bank as of 1 July of each year. While the zones are updated annually, the fees will be adjusted by the Secretariat every two years (non-GA years). The 2016 rates for each Zone are:
Zone A - CAD$ 120.00
Zone B - CAD$ 90.00
Zone C - CAD$ 60.00
To find out which Zone your country belongs to, please refer to this downloadable PDF document.
