ADB's Work in Tuvalu

Tuvalu is a small island developing state comprising nine atolls in the South Pacific. It is geographically isolated and highly vulnerable to climatic and economic shocks. With a small private sector and limited resources to support socioeconomic development, the public sector is its main driver of growth.

The country’s national income derives from fishing license fees, trust fund investments, official development assistance, “dotTV” domain name royalties, and remittances. Disasters triggered by natural hazards increase the country’s economic volatility and can substantially alter fiscal outcomes.
