To help build a more sustainable future for the people of Serbia, UNOPS provides a range of services on behalf of partners – including project management, infrastructure, procurement, human resources and advisory services.

From enhancing social cohesion and local development to improving access to housing, health, education and job opportunities for Serbia’s most vulnerable populations, UNOPS helps build the foundations for Serbia to achieve its long-term sustainable development goals. 

With good governance and gender equality at the heart of its work, UNOPS supports initiatives in line with national strategies and priorities – including Serbia’s path to European Union accession – while also providing emergency support services during times of unprecedented crises.
