(CNN) -- Less that half of the money pledged for post-earthquake recovery activities in Haiti relief has been disbursed, according to a new report from the United Nations.

An analysis conducted by the U.N.'s Office of the Special Envoy for Haiti shows the disbursement rate for pledges from public sector donors is just 37.2%.

Of the $4.6 billion dollars pledged in 2010 and 2011, just $1.71 billion has been distributed. The report says an additional $1.58 billion has been committed.

The analysis does not include funds pledged for humanitarian relief activities or debt relief, nor does it include pledges made by privately-funded organizations.
