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. UNOPS provides project management, procurement, and infrastructure services to governments, donors, and UN organizations.

In Yemen, UNOPS is providing operational support to the Office of the Special Envoy to the Secretary General on Yemen in the context of their work on Yemen’s political transition, as well as providing operational support to the Peace Talk Process. As the Local Fund Agent for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria in Yemen, UNOPS plays a crucial role in helping the 16 million at risk of malaria in the country. To address the dire humanitarian situation and revive the economy in Yemen, UNOPS has been selected to operationalize and manage the United Nations Verification and Inspection Mechanism on behalf of the UN and the concerned Member States. This will enable the essential facilitation of regular commercial cargo flows into the country.
