UNOPS has been operating humanitarian, recovery and sustainable development projects in Sudan since 2005, providing expertise in infrastructure, project management and procurement.

Our team plays a leading role in UN support to infrastructure development. In implementing a new generation of projects in Darfur and across Sudan, we are committed to supporting a more sustainable and equitable use of natural resources, using an integrated approach to water resource management.

From ensuring the people of Sudan have access to clean, safe water to supporting peacekeeping operations to protect civilians, UNOPS works collectively with partners and communities to build a better future.
