 UNOPS

The United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) is an operational arm of the United Nations, supporting the successful implementation of its partners' peacebuilding, humanitarian and development projects around the world.

 

The organization manages the construction of infrastructure projects that promote sustainable development for people in need and is a central procurement resource in the UN, working towards including sustainability considerations in all its procurement.
