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.  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.  With over 7,000 personnel spread across 80 countries, UNOPS offers its partners the logistical, technical and management knowledge they need, where they need it.  By implementing around 1,000 projects for our partners at any given time, UNOPS makes significant contributions to results on the ground, often in the most challenging environments.

In November 2011, a Cooperative Agreement was signed by USAID and UNOPS for the Responsive Assistance to Priority Infrastructure Development (RAPID) Program in the Republic of South Sudan. The program covers five activities thus; Economic Growth, Education, Health/WASH, Office of Transition and Conflict Mitigation and Democracy and Governance. The program is contributing to social-economic development of South Sudan. The roads, education, health and water facilities have significantly contributed to increased access to markets, education and health services.

As per the latest RAPID Cooperation Agreement Modification 12, it has been made available for Rehabilitation of Community Access Feeder Roads that link farmers to markets, input suppliers, humanitarian and sustainable services meant to increase community members’ recovery and resilience capacities. This is part of the broader USAID driven “Partnership for Recovery and Resilience program” that is aimed at consolidating efforts for transitioning community members from humanitarian to development. The roads have been prioritized in consultations with key partners like Un Agencies, local government authorities and local community leader.
