Maldives graduated from the UN Least Developed Countries list in early 2011. This presented the country with challenges such as providing access to clean water to a population spread over 1,200 islands. UNOPS is helping the Maldivian Government overcome these challenges by working with a range of partners including the Government, UN system entities, donors and NGOs.
We provide support in the following areas: development of climate-resilient infrastructure, management of ground and freshwater resources, coastal protection, waste-water management and the development of effective drainage systems, low-carbon energy strategies, advisory services and local capacity development.
