Accelerating progress towards the Sustainability Development Goals is at the forefront of UNOPS work around the world.

17 Goals to transform our world

The Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.


By providing infrastructure, procurement and project management services, we support climate action, build resilience, and foster equality and inclusion to better serve communities in need.

Through our operations, we support the UN family, governments and other partners in their efforts to achieve all 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
