Futurist Amerita Ravuvu reflects on writing a futures narrative about the experience of two fictional personas with using Fijian transport in 2030. Her narratives bring to life ADB’s report on the Future of Transport across Asia and the Pacific.
ADB has approved $150 million in loans to help Fiji recover from the COVID-19 pandemic and build resilience against climate and disaster risks.
Solutions for climate adaptation need to span multiple sectors, government departments and societal contexts. The challenge is great but we can meet it by combining natural and built assets with incentives for collective action and the optimization of traditional knowledge.
A structural shift is taking place in the Pacific islands, as countries move away from fossil fuels in favor of more climate friendly forms of energy.
Across the region, ADB is committed to preparing climate change risk assessments for all its infrastructure investments in the Pacific.
Connectivity in the Pacific has two components: the physical and the digital. ADB has been working with development partners to help people and businesses overcome their isolation.
