WHERE UNFPA WORKS
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”.
