Data and statistics

Agriculture and Food Security Statistics of the Least Developed Countries, Landlocked Developing Countries and Small Island Developing States

In a similar but wider scope than the previous special issue produced in 2011 during the 4th UN Conference on the Least Developed Countries (LDC-IV), this updated Special Issue of Agriculture and Food Security Statistics now includes information not only for of the Least Developed Countries (LDCs), but also for all Landlocked Developing Countries (LLDCs) and Small Island Developing States (SIDS). The current issue presents a compilation of up-to-date available agricultural statistics covering th e general nature of the agricultural sector in LDCs, LLDCs and SIDS ranging across the crops, livestock, forest and fisheries sub-sectors. Basic data and indicators covering resource use and potential, production, consumption, utilization, trade and price volatility are presented. Some of the information on key commodities traded by the concerned group of countries is presented by the degree or stage of processing. In addition, data on recent trends in agricultural investment in LDCs, LLDCs and SIDs is also included. It is hoped that this special issue can serve as a framework for assessing each country’s state of agricultural development and provide relevant information to policy-makers and others concerned with the issues of agricultural development and food security in LDCs, LLDCs and SIDS.
