The country partnership strategy (CPS), 2009–2013, takes into consideration Palau's medium-term development goals, ADB's analysis on constraints to development and growth, and the work undertaken by other development partners. The CPS focuses on improving public sector effectiveness, facilitating private sector development, and managing the threat of climate change. This will be achieved through a combination of capacity development through technical assistance and infrastructure investments in water supply and sanitation that provide basic social services and support tourism growth.
Additional technical support, provided through ADB's regional program, covers technical and vocational education, the promotion of access to renewable resources and improvements in energy efficiency, responses to the impact of climate change, and advice on economic policy and the development of the private sector.
The Palau CPS includes a pipeline of $28 million in loans and $3 million in technical assistance.
