Results of ADB-supported Operations: Solomon Islands

The government and the people of Solomon Islands have been working with ADB since 1973, achieving important development gains in the process. For years, ADB's support focused on agriculture, fisheries, banking, roads and ports, and power and water supplies. More recently, this has shifted to encouraging pro-poor growth and private sector–led economic development by improving the business environment and strengthening transport services.

In transport, infrastructure has been restored and maintenance improved, increasing safety, quality, and reliability. ADB's private sector reform activities have helped implement state-owned enterprise reforms and improve the environment for doing business.

This country brief summarizes how the partnership of the Solomon Islands and ADB has contributed to the development of the country.

Sector/Output Outputs Delivered
Transport
Use of roads built or upgraded (average daily vehicle-kilometers in the first full year of operation) 3,560
Roads built or upgraded (kilometers) 51
Provincial, district, and rural roads built or upgraded (kilometers) 51
Roads built or upgraded, Rural (kilometers) 51

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.

Use of roads built or upgraded between 2010-2013: 3,560 average daily vehicle-kilometers in the first full year of operation

Traffic benefiting from built or upgraded roads in the year after project completion. Vehicles are buses, trucks, minivans, cars, motorcycles, and other motorized means of conveyance, depending on the country and location. Daily vehicle-kilometers is to be calculated by adding all distances in kilometers traveled by all types of vehicles in a day on roads built or upgraded.
