UNOPS has worked in southern Sudan since 2005 and in South Sudan since 2011. Our team provides local and international partners with project management, infrastructure and procurement services to support South Sudan’s Development Plan.

UNOPS is working in a range of sectors in South Sudan, including transport, education, health, post-conflict stabilization and emergency response.

As part of this, UNOPS enables its partners to make vital infrastructure improvements that drive sustainable development and improve peace and security. We work to enhance connectivity – via roads, rivers and bridges – to facilitate both humanitarian access and economic development. We help build and equip hospitals, so that pregnant women receive the healthcare they need for the safe birth of their child. And, we support our partners efforts in alleviating the ongoing humanitarian crisis.

Since 2016, UNOPS has delivered camp management services to ten UNMISS camps and to the British Armed Forces in UNMISS.
