The New York Office provides support and expertise to UNOPS largest partner, the UN Secretariat, alongside other UN partners and their initiatives with a global outreach. The Office is also a pivotal resource for the organization's partnership with UN Member States around the world.
Responding to our partners’ needs
Our New York Office is composed of: the Peace and Security Cluster, which provides the project management platform for the UN Mine Action Service (UNMAS); the Sustainable Development Cluster, which collectively provides a range of important support services to the Secretariat, its initiatives, programmes and conferences; and the New York Board and External Relations Office that works closely with Permanent Missions to the UN in New York and the UN Secretariat.
Our team in New York also includes elements of UNOPS legal, and internal audit and investigations groups.
