UNOPS in India is based in New Delhi and currently manages three major health projects: distributing H1N1 vaccines to developing countries on behalf of WHO, procuring medical goods for the Indian Government and combating child mortality with the Norway-India Partnership Initiative.

Angul, an aspirational district in the India state of Odisha, is rich in mineral and natural resources. Given the availability of coal, kyanite, graphite, fireclay, and other raw materials, well-developed infrastructure in urban and industrial areas, connectivity with the state capital, the district is dominated by the manufacturing sector. In recent years it is experiencing further industrial expansion leading to various environmental issues. These are loss of biodiversity, transformation of farming lands, pollution, active mines and degradation of water bodies in terms of quantity as well as quality.

In alignment with the global goals and national/ subnational plans for sustainable development, the Angul district envisions to develop Angul as the country’s model of mining area development in a challenging environment, with its sustainability embedded in ecological protection, cultural heritage, and human development.

To realise this vision and to build a local level circular, green and inclusive model of economic growth based on judicious use of resources and a life cycle approach, the Angul District Administration in partnership with the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS), and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) aims to develop and implement a first of its kind district level road map on circular and inclusive green economy. The programme will concentrate on the following priority sectors: 1) Plastic; 2) Electronics; 3) Textiles; 4) Aluminium; 5) Steel; 6) Infrastructure; 7) Water management

UNOPS is supporting the DMFT (District Mineral Foundation Trust) Angul by establishing a Programme Management Unit (PMU) that will advise the district administration in the management, implementation, monitoring, and reporting of the programme. UNEP will work as a knowledge partner in this project who will bring international best practices and learnings in this project.
