In line with the broad objective of the Kiribati Development Plan, 2008–2011, which focused on enhancing economic growth for sustainable development, ADB’s program aims to reduce poverty and promote economic opportunity by improving public financial management and delivering sustainable infrastructure services.

Sector/Output Outputs Delivered
Water
New households served with water supply (number) 400
New households served with sanitation (number) 400

The table includes projects completed during the period, and funded by ADB's ordinary capital resources, special fund resources, which include the Asian Development Fund and other special funds, cofinanciers, and the government. The outputs presented are limited to ADB's core sectors, as defined under Strategy 2020 and tracked through indicators in the ADB Results Framework. ADB monitors progress on these outputs in the annual Development Effectiveness Review. The numbers represent the sum of outputs and beneficiaries of individual projects. Therefore, the beneficiary numbers reported under education—teachers trained, and students benefitting from school improvement programs or direct support—include those who benefited from more than one project.
