Solomon Islands and ADB

In the Spotlight

Overview

Solomon Islands is a sprawling country comprising six large islands, dozens of smaller islands, and hundreds of islets and atolls. More than 80% of the population of 553,000 is rural and lives in widely dispersed villages of several hundred people. These factors, along with a narrow economic base, make 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.
