The Partnerships and Liaison Group (PLG) supports UNOPS efforts to build closer ties with partners across the full spectrum of UNOPS activities.

By forging strategic relationships and working with partners, both in the field and at headquarters, PLG seeks to not only ensure high partners satisfaction with UNOPS project implementation and support, but also to integrate best practices and innovative solutions from experienced non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and the private sector into UNOPS operations. The PLG also supports or leads resource mobilization efforts across the organisation. Based in Copenhagen, PLG has active liaison offices in New York, Geneva, Brussels and Washington DC and supports partners such as the World Bank, the European Union, the Department of Peacekeeping Operations, the United Nations Mine Action Service, the United Nations Environment Programme, the Global Fund, the Millennium Challenge Corporation, national governments, and others.

Tokyo Liaison Office (TLO) aims to develop strategic partnerships with organisations based in Japan. We work with the Government of Japan, the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), the private sector and NGOs. The office further assists UNOPS operational teams to manage the portfolio funded by Japanese donors.
