The UNOPS has signed an agreement with the Global Alliance for a Sustainable Planet (GASP) to tackle major environmental and social challenges.
The partnership between UNOPS and GASP aims to enhance communities’ quality of life and ensure sustainability by facilitating global exchanges and supporting ethical, high-quality scientific research in sustainable infrastructure, climate adaptation and resilient ecosystems.
This research is designed to generate insights and practical solutions for sustainable development challenges. Additionally, by promoting engagement with indigenous peoples and vulnerable communities and integrating local knowledge, the partnership looks to generate investment opportunities and policy innovations.
Sanjay Mathur, Regional Director for Asia, UNOPS, said, “This partnership is a big step forward in tackling the environmental and social issues we face in Asia. For me, this represents hope and practical action for vulnerable communities. Working with GASP gives us the tools and partnerships needed to bring real, positive change.”
GASP’s Secretary-General Satya S. Tripathi said the partnership aimed to “leverage our collective expertise and resources to create a more resilient and equitable world.”
To ensure financial sustainability, GASP and UNOPS will build stakeholder partnerships to drive large-scale social and environmental impact identifying prospective institutional counterparts and private sector entities for partnership opportunities in climate action, poverty alleviation and sustainable development. 
They will facilitate exchanges and connections between government bodies and institutions engaged in rural development, sustainable agriculture, energy efficiency and energy access.
GASP is a United States-based organization that aims to generate partnerships among governments, international organizations, entrepreneurs, earth champions and investors to tackle major global challenges, including climate adaptation and resilient ecosystems.
