P4P exemplifies innovation in new UN procurement report

Several successful examples from P4P pilot countries are highlighted in the article “Sustainable procurement and innovation”, published in the thematic supplement to the 2012 Annual Statistical Report on United Nations Procurement. WFP’s local salt procurement project in Senegal is also featured in the publication.


The 2012 Annual Statistical Report on UN Procurement provides data and analysis on the goods and services procured by the United Nations system in support of its operations. The thematic supplement to the report focuses on sustainable procurement. It contains a range of articles and case studies from academia, the public and private sectors and the United Nations.
