UNOPS in Mexico supports the Government of Mexico and other partners to achieve their development goals.

The team provides a range of services, including improving the efficiency and transparency of public procurement through supply chain performance assessments. UNOPS advises on public tenders and works to build capacity of the Government through training programmes.

UNOPS also provides project management support through the development of technical studies for the management of water resources and planning sustainable infrastructure works.

As part of this, UNOPS is developing the Sustainable Jalisco Rio Verde Basin project to establish sound and impartial technical criteria that will enable the Government to make decisions regarding sustainability and planning of infrastructure works in the Rio Verde basin. The aim is also to mitigate the socio-environmental conflict in the region relating to water use in the state of Jalisco.
