The PMR is made up of Contributing Participants who provide financial support to the PMR trust fund and Implementing Country Participants who receive PMR funding. Together, these participants make up the decision-making body of the PMR's Partnership Assembly (PA). In 2013, the PMR added a new category of participant, the Technical Partner. The U.S. state of California, the Canadian province of Quebec and Kazakhstan all participate as Technical Partners.
