Background Information – Job-specific
The UN Office for Project Services (UNOPS) has taken initial steps to explore the potential use of blockchain technology to support UNOPS projects and general management. To date, UNOPS globally has put together a working group on blockchain technology, engaged multiple UN agencies and international organizations around their potential interests, and identified more than 70 potential blockchain partner companies and organizations. At the same time, country offices, including the Nepal Operations Center, have begun to engage local partners in conversation about potential applications for the technology.


The UNOPS Nepal Operations Center is undertaking a process to further research and develop potential project ideas around the application of blockchain technology. This could include ways to use blockchain technology to support government partners as well as applications of blockchain within internal project management systems. Given that blockchain technology is relatively new, and its application within humanitarian and development sectors is even more recent, UNOPS Nepal plans to first conduct a wide-ranging process of ideation to identify potential uses of blockchain. From these initial ideas, a small number of promising ideas will be identified and further developed, with the aim of conducting at least one blockchain project in Nepal.

To support this process, UNOPS plans to engage a contractor to support the ideation and concept development that will lead into project development. This contractor will help identify potential applications of blockchain, assess those applications for viability, and develop a small number of promising ideas.
