“With a strong field presence and proven technical capacity, UNOPS is not only a valuable resource for development partners, but also a key actor for national capacity development and knowledge transfer.”
– Magnus Lennartsson
Minister, Permanent Mission of Sweden to the United Nations, in a statement on behalf of Denmark, Finland and Norway
Our team of highly-qualified engineers, architects and project managers bring international industry best practices to our partners' infrastructure projects. In 2013, UNOPS was awarded ISO 14001 certification for its commitment to protecting the environment when managing construction sites.
In accordance with our
policy for sustainable infrastructure, UNOPS develops national capacity and promotes sustainable building practices. We also work to improve gender equality and the empowerment of women. Many of the facilities we construct specifically help girls and women receive vital education, justice and healthcare services.
