The United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS)
Mission. Vision. Purpose.
UNOPS is a service provider, a technical advisor and an implementer of projects. We help the UN and other partners provide peace and security, humanitarian and development solutions.
Our mission is to help people build better lives and countries achieve peace and sustainable development.
Our vision is a world where people can live full lives supported by appropriate, sustainable and resilient infrastructure and by the efficient, transparent use of public resources in procurement and project management.
We help people build better lives and countries achieve peace and sustainable development.
We bring to this task the values and principles of the United Nations and the innovation, boldness, speed and efficiency of a self-financed institution.
We bring the highest international standards to what we do, while respecting local contexts. We do this as our contribution to tackling the huge challenges of the 21st century.
We provide practical solutions to assist our partners to save lives, protect people and their rights, and to build a better world.
We aspire to be a leader in the efforts to channel private sector investments for social and environmental impact while addressing the immense needs for sustainable development.
What drives us is a passion to fight inequalities and to provide opportunities to those most vulnerable. This means we often work in the most challenging environments, building foundations for communities to function and people to live with dignity and respect.
We are passionate about quality: In our people and in what we do.
We earn the trust of those we work with by caring about what they value, and by delivering on our promise to always act in the service of people in need.
We recognize that strong partnerships and effective coordination among diverse actors is crucial to efficiency and innovation.
We add value to our partners’ results when our practices and performance are of high quality and are well-adapted to local conditions.
Accountability for results and transparency
We seek to help our partners exercise their accountability. We believe better use of public resources can have a transformational effect – helping to enhance transparency, empower institutions and promote peace and sustainable development.
- Developing skills, building capacity
We respect and support national ownership and help develop local and national capacity. This is the foundation for sustainability.
