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 6,000 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.

UNOPS Nepal Context:

Since 2015, UNOPS has engaged closely with the Government of Nepal and several development partners in development efforts of the Government of Nepal including the modernization of the Nepal Police, helping to improve policing services, conducting the post-earthquake assessment of damaged buildings, and enrollment of beneficiaries into housing grant schemes, retrofitting damaged houses, reconstruction of disability-friendly schools, and delivering of essential equipment to support COVID-19 response efforts amongst others.

The functional objective of UNOPS Nepal is to deliver its projects efficiently and effectively in alignment with government priorities following UNOPS rules and regulations. This is to drive forward the outcomes sought by the clients and funding partners and contribute to the achievement of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) while ensuring gender, diversity, and inclusion are mainstreamed in all its work for the people of Nepal.

Project Information:

The Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) funded Security and Justice Programme (SJP) will continue the Integrated Programme for Strengthening Security and Justice’s dual focus of tackling criminal violence and other causes of public insecurity, in particular gender-based violence (GBV), and strengthening the service delivery capacity of the Nepal Police (NP) and other key duty-bearers. FCDO’s SJP is a five year programme (2023-2027) with an anticipated budget of up to GBP 35 million.

As part of the FCDO’s programme, UNOPS as an implementing partner, will deliver on the SJP Policing Component from April 2024-2027. This is being preceded by the ongoing 12 months Launching Phase (funded by the SJP) and will contribute towards achieving Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 5 (Gender Equality) and 16 (Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions).

The multi-year SJP will support more representative, accountable, and responsive policing and also help tackle gender-based violence in Nepal. The programme will contribute to the following result areas:

1. Security and justice providers have improved their capacity to serve the public and manage relationships with communities, leading to increased public safety with increased trust from people in the state.

2. Security and justice institutions at the Provincial and Palika levels have effective, accountable, inclusive, and sustainable systems in line with the federal constitutional mandates to improve their skills and better manage their resources to meet people’s security and justice needs.

3. Decreased prevalence of GBV led by increased access to services for those who seek them.

In relation to this, UNOPS, as a potential implementing partner for the FCDO, is planning to recruit an Operations and maintenance Coordinator for the project.
