The funding of the PEMB is based on voluntary contributions from the promoters and founders which ensure the normal operation of the association. It also receives funding from grants or other contributions for the development of specific projects.

The Steering Council, the governing body of the entity, annually approves the proposed budget and work plan, subsequently ratified by the General Council, which acts as the general assembly. It also approves the proposed activity report, the settlement of the budget and the preparation of the annual accounts. The annual accounts are audited. The exercise of positions in the governing bodies of the PEMB is honorary and free, and no attendance allowances are deserved.

The General Coordinator is the person delegated by the Steering Council to carry out the implementation, coordination, and monitoring of the strategic plans. It is appointed by the Steering Council from among recognised experts and specialists. His term of office is open-ended and he receives remuneration as a full-time employee.
