Long Description

UNOPS and IOTA collaborate to bring transparency and efficiency to UN work

The two organizations have partnered to explore how IOTA’s innovative technology — which provides an open-source distributed ledger for data management — can increase the efficiency of UNOPS operations.

“We share a vision where machines, devices, sensors and people connect and communicate to each other — it’s the world of ‘Industry 4.0.’ Harnessing technology that allows for these processes to work simultaneously, without the need for intermediaries, will help expedite our mission as an organization,” added Yoshiyuki Yamamoto, UNOPS Special Advisor on Blockchain Technology.

In welcoming the cooperation, IOTA Co-Founder Dominik Schiener noted: “We are thrilled to begin working together with UNOPS and to tackle current and future challenges together. The IOTA Foundation is fully committed to putting the IOTA Tangle to work on behalf of important humanitarian and development causes.”

IOTA’s distributed ledger can provide a greater level of efficiency in the management and tracking of UN documents, supply chains and transactional payments in real-time, with access available to both UNOPS and its partners.

IOTA Co-Founder David Sønstebø stated: “Shared global problems require shared global solutions. With our open-source, permission-less innovation approach, IOTA’s distributed ledger technology lends itself uniquely to this kind of cooperative problem-solving.”

Cooperation between both organizations will further extend to training workshops, thought leadership seminars, and the development of specific proof-of-concepts to bring greater efficiencies to specific areas of UNOPS work.
