Fiji: Cofinancing

Cofinancing operations enable ADB’s financing partners, governments or their agencies, multilateral financing institutions, and commercial organizations to participate in financing ADB projects. Additional funds are provided in the form of official loans and grants, technical assistance, other concessional financing, and commercial cofinancing such as B loans, risk transfer arrangements, parallel loans and equity, guarantee cofinancing, and cofinancing for transactions under ADB’s Trade Finance Program.

From 1970 to the end of 2016, cumulative direct value-added official cofinancing for Fiji amounted to $179.1 million for four investment projects and $0.5 million for two technical assistance projects.

In 2016, Fiji received $76.6 million loan cofinancing from the European Investment Bank and the World Bank for two investment projects; and $31 million grant cofinancing from the Green Climate Fund for one investment project.
