UNOPS signs Host Country Agreement with the government of Uzbekistan
UNOPS and the government will work together with partners to help address national development priorities and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
UNOPS has signed a Host Country Agreement with the government of Uzbekistan to help foster sustainable development and bolster collaboration in Central Asia. The agreement marks a crucial milestone in UNOPS efforts to support the government and partners to improve lives and advance sustainable development in Uzbekistan and the region.
Through the agreement, UNOPS work will support the country’s ‘Uzbekistan-2030 Strategy’, which is centered on upgrading education, healthcare and social protection systems that adhere to international standards. It also focuses on sustainable economic growth, environmental conservation, modern governance, and fostering a safe and peaceful state.
“UNOPS is already present and working with our partners in Uzbekistan, delivering major health infrastructure and equipment. This Host Country Agreement marks an important milestone in our partnership with the government of Uzbekistan and it will help to scale up our work across Central Asia,” said UNOPS Executive Director, Jorge Moreira da Silva.
“We are fully committed to supporting the country’s efforts to achieve its national development priorities and the Sustainable Development Goals. Through our collaboration, as part of the United Nations Country Team in Uzbekistan, we look forward to delivering impact for better health and diagnostic care over the coming years,” he added.
UNOPS is actively involved in several projects in Uzbekistan, focusing on enhancing health services and strengthening preparedness against epidemics. UNOPS is also exploring opportunities to support the education sector by facilitating infrastructure development and promoting inclusive and technology-enabled education.
The new agreement promises to further these efforts, with a focus on delivering complex projects such as constructing and rehabilitating key social infrastructure – including hospitals, schools, and transport systems, contributing to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals in Uzbekistan.
