UNOPS plans, designs, constructs and maintains a wide range of sustainable and resilient infrastructure solutions. From transport, energy, health and education infrastructure to advising governments on ways to make infrastructure more effective, our experts can help improve the outcomes on investments in infrastructure, for the benefit of local populations and national development.

Our team of qualified advisors, architects, engineers, project managers and specialists bring industry best practices to infrastructure projects. In addition to the five traditional infrastructure sectors – transportation, water and sanitation, energy, ICT and solid waste management – UNOPS implements social infrastructure projects in other sectors such as rule of law, health and education.

With the 2030 Agenda in mind, UNOPS follows an evidence-based approach to infrastructure development, relying on data and fact-based planning to inform decision-making and meet the needs of the present generation, and those to come.

Technical assistance

UNOPS offers a wide range of advisory services and technical assistance programmes to help our partners improve their ability to plan, deliver and manage infrastructure.



UNOPS helps partners design, construct, rehabilitate and maintain infrastructure – such as schools, hospitals, courthouses and police stations – in some of world’s most challenging environments.
