Fiji and ADB
In the Spotlight
Even though official unemployment in Fiji is low, the country has a large informal labor market in which workers toil without income security or social protection.
ADB’s interventions in the Pacific should help countries reduce the high cost of doing business and providing services, develop capacity to manage risks from economic shocks, natural disasters, and climate change, as well as promote the creation of competitive high value-added goods and services.
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.
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.
