UNOPS signed a project agreement with the government of Ethiopia to implement a World Bank-funded response, recovery and resilience project in the Tigray region
UNOPS will implement a $25 million project in the Tigray region that focuses on health, education, water, sanitation and hygiene by providing rapid response services, reconstructing basic social services affected by conflict and supporting community-level social institutions for resilience.
"This project will help support the resumption of essential social services in selected conflict-affected woredas [districts] in Tigray," said Worknesh Mekonnen, Director of UNOPS Multi-Country Office in Ethiopia.
This project is part of the $300 million World Bank-funded 'Response-Recovery-Resilience for Conflict-Affected Communities in Ethiopia' project which will be implemented in five regions: Amhara, Afar, Benishangul Gumuz, Oromia and Tigray. It aims to rebuild and improve access to basic social services and climate-resilient community infrastructure.
