The United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS)


Across Africa, UNOPS works with our partners to help maximize the impact of their humanitarian, development and peace initiatives – all in support of the Sustainable Development Goals.

We work to build resilience, mitigate the impact of disasters, and assist partners with responding, recovering, and building back better from crises and conflict. We help reduce inequalities by enabling access to basic services for vulnerable communities, build the capacity of institutions and suppliers, and drive economic opportunities.

We think innovatively and work efficiently so that the people of Africa can build a stronger future and governments can achieve peace and sustainable development.
