UNOPS in Cambodia
UNOPS established its Cambodia office in early 2013. Since then UNOPS Cambodia has carried out a series of projects and programs, including the management of multi-donor funds to support the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (also known as the Khmer Rouge Tribunal). UNOPS Cambodia has also been providing advisory and implementation services in the infrastructure sector to other development partners including Japan, Korea EU, and procurement support and advisory services to different line ministries of the Royal Government of Cambodia. UNOPS Cambodia is also providing support services to the Malaria Program of the Regional Artemisinin Initiative (RAI) funded by the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria (GFATM).
