UNOPS supports partners to build a better future by providing services that increase the efficiency, effectiveness, and sustainability of peacebuilding, humanitarian, and development projects.  Mandated as a central resource of the United Nations, UNOPS provides sustainable project management, procurement, and infrastructure services to a wide range of governments, donors, and United Nations organizations.

New York Service Cluster (NYSC) supports the United Nations Secretariat, as well as other New York-based United Nations organizations, bilateral and multilateral partners in the delivery of UNOPS mandate in project management, infrastructure management, and procurement management.

Sustainable Development Cluster (SDC) supports diverse partners with peacebuilding, humanitarian, and development operations. It was formed by combining the following portfolios: Grants Management Services (GMS), UN Technology Support Services (UNTSS), Development and Special Initiatives Portfolio (DSIP). It provides Services to partners' programmes that are designed, structured, and managed with a global perspective and primarily serving partners headquartered in New York.  The SDC has a footprint of approximately 125 countries.

The Group of 77 (G-77) was established on 15 June 1964 by seventy-seven developing countries signatories of the "Joint Declaration of the Seventy-Seven Developing Countries" issued at the end of the first session of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) in Geneva. Beginning with the first "Ministerial Meeting of the Group of 77 in Algiers (Algeria) on 10 - 25 October 1967, which adopted the Charter of Algiers", a permanent institutional structure gradually developed which led to the creation of Chapters of the Group of 77 with Liaison offices in Geneva (UNCTAD), Nairobi (UNEP), Paris (UNESCO), Rome (FAO/IFAD), Vienna (UNIDO), and the Group of 24 (G-24) in Washington, D.C. (IMF and World Bank). Although the members of the G-77 have increased to 135 countries, the original name was retained due to its historic significance.

At the first South Summit held on 10-14 April 2000, Member States established a permanent Executive Secretariat at the United Nations Headquarters in New York. The compact core secretariat is the lifeline and institutional memory of the Group of 77. The Executive Secretariat provides the day-to-day technical, substantive support and strategic guidance to the Chairmanship and to the membership. This core support also is the link with all the Chapters of the G-77 in Geneva, Nairobi, Paris, Rome, Vienna, and the Group of 24 in Washington, DC and serves as a coordinating mechanism for the follow-up and implementation of the decisions and mandates adopted by the Group of 77 at different levels.
