ADB-Tuvalu Partnership Strategy | Asian Development Bank

ADB-Tuvalu Partnership Strategy

The country operations business plan (COBP), 2017-2019 for Tuvalu is aligned with the Pacific Approach, 2016-2020, which guides ADB’s operational assistance in the Pacific and serves as the country partnership strategy for Tuvalu with an emphasis on reducing costs, managing risks, and enabling value creation.

The COBP will focus on strengthening public sector management; maritime transport; information and communication technology (ICT); and disaster risk reduction. This supports the Tuvalu National Strategy for Sustainable Development, 2016-2020 objectives.

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.
