UNOPS has worked in Indonesia since 2005, supporting the Government and other partners with services in the education, health and environment sectors.

This has included projects funded by the United Nations Children's Fund, such as the reconstruction of schools following the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami and the construction of health, nutrition and early childhood development centres.

UNOPS has also provided a range of services in support of the United Nations Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+) Programme in Indonesia. For example, with funding from the Government of Norway, UNOPS managed the construction of a climate communications centre in Central Kalimantan where local people can share information to increase their resilience to climate change. In addition, UNOPS is currently supporting the REDD+ activities of the United Nations Environment Programme with services that include the organization of events and workshops, on behalf of the UN Office for REDD+ Coordination in Indonesia.
