UNOPS has supported national reconstruction and development efforts in Afghanistan since 1995. In collaboration with governments, UN organizations and other partners, UNOPS supports the construction of sustainable infrastructure throughout the country.
With national ownership and capacity development as key priorities, UNOPS strengthens Afghan institutions and provides efficient operational support when facilitating partner projects. In addition, UNOPS supports multi-country programmes that have activities within Afghanistan including Small Grants and Peace and Security.
UNOPS is currently supporting the Afghanistan Community Resilience and Livelihoods Project funded by the World Bank and the Afghanistan Reconstruction Trust Fund. The project will help provide short-term livelihood and income opportunities for Afghans and deliver urgent basic services in rural and urban areas.
