UNOPS has worked in Côte d'Ivoire since 2008. We provide infrastructure, procurement, transactional, implementation, and advisory services to projects that promote sustainable infrastructure and economic development in the country. Working closely with communities and local authorities, UNOPS supports national capacity development through sharing knowledge and best practices with national partners. 

UNOPS covers a wide range of thematic areas in the country including health, energy, infrastructure, disaster risk reduction and the environment. We work to reduce poverty levels through revitalizing the agricultural industry, procuring necessary equipment and creating employment opportunities.  Additionally, we partner with the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees to provide specialized support to refugee relief projects.

Regional Support

The UNOPS office in Côte d'Ivoire serves as an operational hub, supporting projects in 29 countries in western and southern Africa. With oversight from the hub, UNOPS collaborates with government agencies and aid organizations to implement high-quality projects with a lasting impact in the region. Examples range from constructing three paediatric medical centres in Sierra Leone to supporting the United Nations Development Programme in improving storage facilities for pharmaceuticals in Zimbabwe. UNOPS also participates in comprehensive regional initiatives, such as the Western and Central African Rural Development Hub project and a project focused on the conservation of a biodiversity zone across Cameroon, Gabon and the Republic of the Congo.
