Results of ADB-supported Operations: Federated States of Micronesia

The Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) have been working with ADB since 1990, achieving important development gains since. Over time, the focus of ADB assistance shifted. In the early years, there were significant investments in social infrastructure. Subsequently, however, the focus has been more on public sector reform and private sector development.

Thanks to ADB support for public infrastructure, the citizens of FSM have greater access to essential services, including water, sewerage, and power.

This country brief summarizes how the partnership between the Government of the Federated States of Micronesia and ADB has contributed to the development of the country.

The table includes projects completed during the period, and funded by ADB's ordinary capital resources and/or the Asian Development Fund, 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.
