Solomon Islands and ADB

In the Spotlight

Overview

Solomon Islands is one of the largest countries in Melanesia, and is spread across six large islands, dozens of smaller islands, and hundreds of islets and atolls. More than 80% of Solomon Islanders live in rural villages of several hundred people, and this widely dispersed population, along with a narrow economic base, makes the provision of public services challenging.

ADB’s strategic focus on infrastructure development - including transport and ICT - private sector development, public sector management, and renewable energy, remains relevant in the context of development challenges, government priorities, and the support provided by other development partners.
