UNSOS is headquartered in Mogadishu, with a regional office in Baidoa, Somalia.

UNSOS’ mission in Somalia involves providing support to AMISOM and SNA in a range of areas, including transport, communications, medical services, engineering, and security. The Baidoa facility serves as a hub for UNSOS’ operations in the southwest region of Somalia, providing logistical support and resources to AMISOM and SNA troops stationed in the region.

The UNSOS mission has developed an environmental policy that includes measures for waste management, energy conservation, and pollution prevention. UNSOS has also implemented a sustainable procurement program that prioritizes environmentally friendly products and services, and the mission actively engages with local communities to promote environmental awareness and sustainability practices.
