Since 2012, UNOPS has supported UN agencies and the Government of Colombia with the implementation of a range of projects. Infrastructure, capacity building, sustainable procurement and transparency are among our key areas of work throughout the country.
As such, UNOPS is working with the Government of Colombia in a widespread housing initiative to provide jobs and improve the homes of thousands of people who were displaced or affected by years of conflict.
UNOPS also provides administrative, advisory and related services to partners in the country.
