ADB-Fiji Partnership Strategy | Asian Development Bank

ADB-Fiji Partnership Strategy

The country partnership strategy (CPS), 2014-2018 and country operations business plan (COBP), 2017–2019 for Fiji positions ADB to reengage quickly and fully with the new government to help the country overcome its key development challenges, with focus on three interlinked priorities:

  • raising Fiji’s longer-term growth potential,
  • building resilience and reducing vulnerability, and
  • reducing poverty through more inclusive growth and better service delivery.

Under this strategic partnership, ADB will provide Fiji with up to $350 million to support the country’s development agenda. Through its ordinary capital resources, ADB is able to offer low-cost financing for Fiji. In addition, ADB will provide almost $8 million in grants to finance technical assistance over the same period.

The Public Communications Policy (PCP) recognizes that transparency and accountability are essential to development effectiveness. It establishes the disclosure requirements for documents and information ADB produces or requires to be produced.

The Accountability Mechanism provides a forum where people adversely affected by ADB-assisted projects can voice and seek solutions to their problems and report alleged noncompliance of ADB's operational policies and procedures.

In preparing any country program or strategy, financing any project, or by making any designation of, or reference to, a particular territory or geographic area in this document, the Asian Development Bank does not intend to make any judgments as to the legal or other status of any territory or area.
