UNFPAUNFPA Annual Report 2001
Back to Main Menu


In 2001, UNFPA worked in 141 countries, areas and territories through nine Country Technical Services Teams and 112 country offices.

UNFPA provides population assistance to countries based on population size, gross national product, and progress in meeting the international goals set at the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) and the ICPD+5.

Countries fall into five categories: Group A countries, which include all least developed nations, have the highest need for assistance. Group B countries have the second highest need. Group C countries have made the most progress and thus require the least funding. The other two categories are Group T countries, those with economies in transition, and Group O countries, “others”.
