Design Planning Manual for Buildings

As the central UN resource for infrastructure, UNOPS has a responsibility to continually review and improve the quality of infrastructure works delivered to its partners. All infrastructure projects delivered by UNOPS should have a special focus on national capacity and sustainability, to contribute to the ability of countries to design, construct and maintain infrastructure, and to integrate and balance social, environmental and economic considerations in accordance with the UNOPS Policy for Sustainable Infrastructure. This is in line with UNOPS mandate1, vision and high-level goals as outlined in UNOPS Strategic Plan 2014-2017.
