UNOPS has worked in Peru since 1995, providing infrastructure, procurement, project management and advisory services. The team primarily provides technical assistance to expand the capacity of the Government to better serve the people of Peru.
We support a range of projects in the areas of health, education, justice and social inclusion, governance and public policy, the environment, transportation, agriculture, and sports and recreation.
UNOPS contributes to the modernization of public management and the efficient use of public resources. We also help ensure coherence and sustainability of projects, taking into account national priorities and the Sustainable Development Goals.
