UNOPS has worked in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DR Congo) since 1999, providing services in procurement, project management, infrastructure and human resources.  UNOPS supports partners in road and building construction, disaster risk management, water and sanitation infrastructure and emergency humanitarian assistance, such as gathering data on internally displaced people in camps around the country.

Other projects have included agricultural and elections support.  In addition, UNOPS supports national capacity development and infrastructure maintenance by training local workers and project partners.  We also support environmental impact studies and the implementation of environmental management plans for roads.
