UNOPS Brussels Liaison Office supports and strengthens partnerships between UNOPS and the European Union (EU) and its Member States, managing relationships with a wide variety of EU institutions, select development banks and other agencies.

As a key partner of the EU, UNOPS supports a broad range of EU-funded projects and programmes – bringing peace and security, humanitarian and development solutions in some of the world’s most challenging environments.

UNOPS also contributes to all joint UN actions in Brussels to promote and accelerate the realization of the 2030 Agenda, and also serves as trustee and secretariat for Cities Alliance, a global platform that supports cities in developing countries to enhance sustainable development and reduce poverty.
