UNOPS has been implementing projects in Argentina since 2005, supporting the government in achieving tangible results for communities across the country and advancing progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals.

UNOPS supports the government’s priorities at the national, provincial and municipal levels in the formulation and joint implementation of projects, with a focus on sustainability, building local capacities and gender mainstreaming and inclusion.

Through our projects, we delivered critical medical equipment during the COVID-19 pandemic, supported post-disaster emergency response efforts and helped bridge the digital gap in public schools.

Our ongoing work aims to improve access to clean drinking water, safe living conditions and accessible public spaces for vulnerable and marginalized communities.
