Since 2006, UNOPS has provided a range of project management, infrastructure, procurement and human resource services, supporting social and economic development in Tunisia.

Working in close collaboration with the government of Tunisia, other UN organizations, non-governmental organizations and international financial institutions, UNOPS supports government-led regional development, green employment and justice reform projects.

In addition to Tunisia, our team further supports sustainable development across the region, managing projects in Algeria, Egypt, Libya and Morocco. Using our local knowledge and expertise, we help develop local capacity and maintain a strong focus on the environment, health, and women and youth empowerment.
