Government of the Philippines

UNOPS supports the government and other partners in sustainable procurement, infrastructure, governance, grant management and logistical support services. Our work emphasizes building national capacity, strengthening community resilience and supporting efforts towards the Sustainable Development Goals.
To help strengthen the Philippines’ governance and justice systems, UNOPS is supporting two programmes funded by the European Union. This includes strengthening capacities of the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao government.
UNOPS is further supporting government efforts to scale up public health capacity to strengthen the health system and ensure the country is better equipped to manage health crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic.
