About Us

UNOPS stands for the United Nations Office for Project Services. It is a self-financing arm of the United Nations that provides project management, infrastructure, and procurement services to governments, United Nations agencies, and other partners around the world. UNOPS works to implement and support peacebuilding, humanitarian, and development projects in various countries, including Yemen.

In Yemen, UNOPS has been involved in a range of projects aimed at addressing the country's urgent needs and supporting its development. Given the ongoing conflict and humanitarian crisis in Yemen, UNOPS focuses on initiatives that contribute to sustainable development, infrastructure rehabilitation, and the provision of essential services.

UNOPS projects in Yemen cover several sectors, including health, education, water and sanitation, energy, and infrastructure. They work closely with local partners and stakeholders to implement these projects effectively. Some of the specific activities carried out by UNOPS in Yemen include:

Health: UNOPS supports the rehabilitation and construction of healthcare facilities, ensuring access to quality healthcare services, and providing medical equipment and supplies.

Education: UNOPS works on rehabilitating and constructing schools, providing educational materials and equipment, and promoting access to education for children in Yemen.

Energy: UNOPS assists in rehabilitating and expanding energy infrastructure, including power plants and electricity distribution networks, to enhance access to electricity for communities in Yemen.

Infrastructure: UNOPS undertakes infrastructure projects to improve road networks, bridges, ports, and airports, facilitating the movement of goods and people within the country.
