ADB-Nauru Partnership Strategy | Asian Development Bank

ADB-Nauru Partnership Strategy

The country operations business plan (COBP), 2017-2019 continues the strategic direction of ADB in Nauru in the areas of transport, energy, and public sector management. It also begins new support for information and communication technology (ICT) and urban development. These directions are aligned with the Pacific Approach, 2016-2020, which serves as the country partnership strategy for Nauru.

The program pipeline will contribute to the objectives of the Pacific Approach by:

  • reducing costs through infrastructure development;
  • managing risk by strengthening public sector management; and
  • enabling value creation through improving ICT connectivity.

These are also priorities under Nauru’s National Sustainable Development Strategy, 2005-2025.

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.
