The United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS)

Partnerships

We're dedicated to supporting our partners by providing services that increase the effectiveness of peace and security, humanitarian and development projects worldwide.

To advance the 2030 Agenda – including supporting climate actions and promoting equal opportunities – UNOPS aims to engage in collaborative partnerships with a focus on sharing our expertise in infrastructure, procurement, project management, human resources and financial services.

We work with a variety of partners, from the UN family to governments, non-governmental organizations, academia and the private sector.

Our partners call on us to supplement their own capacities, improve efficiency and transparency, reduce risks, boost cost-effectiveness and ensure quality.
