• Data: Supplier countries | Developing countries | Categories | Organizations | Suppliers | Collaboration | Sustainable procurement


  • In addition to publishing statistics on supplier country, the ASR reports statistics on procurement from least developed countries (LDCs), landlocked developing countries (LLDCs) and small island developing states (SIDS).

    The category of LLDCs encompasses a group of developing countries with no territorial access to the sea, while SIDS are a group of small island developing countries and territories. Both LLDCs and SIDS face connectivity and transportation barriers that lead to social, economic and environmental challenges. Similar to the LDC classification, the LLDCs and SIDS categories were established to acknowledge the unique development challenges those countries face and the concentrated assistance they require. 

    The dashboard below shows procurement by year, category and country for each development status grouping.

  • In the dashboard above, the Procurement by category chart shows data at the highest category level (UNSPSC segment). Right click on the category chart and select "Drill up" to see the category information by ASR Sector. Data on more detailed category levels is available on the Categories page.

    You can click the dashboard elements to filter the dashboard. Hold the control or command key while clicking to select more than one chart element. To see data for only one development status, click the relevant legend icon above one of the charts. To select one or more years of data only, click and drag across years on the "Procurement by type" chart.


    Note: For analytical purposes, the ASR uses the country categorizations of LDCs, LLDCs and SIDS, following the M49 standard as current at the end of the reporting period. There is no established convention for the definition of countries and areas that are considered LLDCs or SIDS. The current composition of countries and areas in the LLDC and SIDS groups was set at the beginning of the Sustainable Development Goals reporting period based on various definitions available at the time.


  • The Annual Statistical Report on United Nations Procurement is produced by UNOPS on behalf of the United Nations.
