Results of ADB-supported Operations: Papua New Guinea

As Papua New Guinea's development partner since 1971, ADB has helped the government build solid foundations in physical and social infrastructure. ADB is helping the government foster public–private partnerships to develop and manage infrastructure and improve the delivery of economic and social services.

ADB is engaged in projects to strengthen land, water, and air transport, develop clean power and encourage private sector development. The improvement of human resources by providing primary health care and basic financial services through microfinance is also a focus of ADB's assistance.

This country brief summarizes how the partnership between the Government of Papua New Guinea 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.
