Implementation

As a central resource for infrastructure projects within the UN system, UNOPS helps partners implement the infrastructure required to drive sustainable and resilient development. 

Investing in sustainable and resilient infrastructure is vital for improving the living standards of communities worldwide – and to provide safeguards against extreme weather events and natural hazards.

From hospitals in Latin America and road maintenance in Afghanistan, to reconstruction and disaster risk reduction in Haiti, we deliver a diverse range of infrastructure projects around the world to help contribute to the achievement of all the Sustainable Development Goals.

Partners recognize UNOPS as having the right expertise and local knowledge to successfully deliver infrastructure projects on their behalf, in diverse and often challenging environments around the world.

UNOPS infrastructure focuses on achieving the most resilient outcome. By making economic, social and environmental sustainability our priority, UNOPS helps partners deliver infrastructure projects with lasting outcomes. We encourage local ownership by involving communities at all stages of the projects we support, ensuring long-term use and maintenance. 

In accordance with our policy for sustainable infrastructure, UNOPS develops national capacity and promotes sustainable building practices. We also work to improve gender equality and the empowerment of women.
