Tuvalu and ADB
In the Spotlight
ADB's Board of Directors has approved a total of $15 million in financing for the Pacific Disaster Resilience Program which will help strengthen Samoa, Tonga, and Tuvalu’s resilience to disasters.
As part of a decades-old partnership that has helped improve the delivery of public services, Tuvalu and ADB are working together to improve the lives of people living on the outer islands.
Tuvalu is a fragile microstate consisting of nine low-lying atolls. The country has a total area of only 26 square kilometers, and most of its 11,000 people live on the main island, Funafuti.
With few exports, Tuvalu is almost entirely dependent on external aid as well as highly variable revenue from fishing licenses, remittances, surpluses from the country’s overseas trust fund, and rent of its “dot tv” internet extension. Building and maintaining fiscal resilience and upgrading maritime infrastructure are key priorities for the government.
ADB's approach and operations in Tuvalu are aligned with the national strategy for sustainable development.
