UNOPS (United Nations Office for Project Services)
UNOPS (United Nations Office for Project Services) provides infrastructure, procurement and project management services to help build a more sustainable future.
To support the achievement of the 2030 Agenda, UNOPS responds to its partners’ needs and helps increase the effectiveness of peace and security, humanitarian and development projects around the world – often in some of the most challenging environments.
UNOPS is focussed on implementation. It combines the best of the UN and the private sector, helping to ensure partners maximize the positive impact of their projects – with equality, inclusiveness, sustainability and resilience at the centre of its work.
Driven by the belief that every project can make a lasting impact, UNOPS manages projects and programmes of every size. From helping countries build and design infrastructure with people’s best interests in mind, to supporting governments to enhance the transparency, efficiency and effectiveness of public procurement, UNOPS helps countries build the foundations for peace and sustainable development.
