Fiji and ADB
In the Spotlight
The Green Climate Fund (GCF) approved a $31 million climate adaptation grant for ADB's planned Fiji Urban Water Supply and Wastewater Management Project that will benefit a third of the country’s population of 860,000.
The economy is expected to grow in 2015 in line with earlier projections as broad-based growth continues to be supported by fiscal stimulus, rising investment, and increased consumption—all aided by low oil prices.
The Government of Australia and ADB have established the Pacific Business Investment Facility, an advisory service for Pacific island businesses requiring commercial finance for growth, diversification, or consolidation of their businesses.
This brief provides representatives of national government and regional organizations in Coral Triangle of the Pacific (CTP) and similar countries—with policy advice to help rural communities adapt to climate change.
Consistent with the priorities of successive governments, ADB engagement in Fiji has focused on promoting inclusive economic growth and poverty reduction. Strides have been made toward these goals through direct investments in transport and urban water and sanitation infrastructure, and improved public sector management.
The country partnership strategy for 2014-2018 aims to raise Fiji’s growth potential by encouraging private investment, make growth more inclusive and improve service delivery, and reduce volatility and build resilience.
