ADB-Nauru Partnership Strategy

The country operations business plan, 2016-2018  for Nauru continues the strategic direction of ADB in the country in the areas of public sector management, energy, and transport. It is aligned with Nauru’s National Sustainable Development Strategy (NSDS), 2005-2025.

The Pacific Approach, 2016-2020, which is ADB's operational framework for the Pacific, serves as the country partnership strategy for Nauru and 10 other smaller Pacific island countries.

ADB is supporting the implementation of Nauru’s NSDS, 2005-2025. A key economic priority under the NSDS is to improve public sector management and the use of the country’s remaining scarce natural resources. The development of better utility services, including energy, and the provision of enhanced infrastructure services, are also priorities.

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.
