Nauru: Country Operations Business Plan (2016–2018)

Institutional Document | August 2015

The country operations business plan, 2016–2018 continues the strategic direction of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) in Nauru in the areas of public sector management (PSM), energy, and transport. It is aligned with ADB’s Interim Pacific Approach, 2015, which extends the validity of ADB’s Pacific Approach, 2010–2014; Nauru’s National Sustainable Development Strategy (NSDS), 2005–2025; and ADB’s Midterm Review of Strategy 2020. 

The Pacific Approach acts as the country partnership strategy for Nauru. It includes a focus on strengthening PSM, and identifies energy and transport as key sectors. ADB is supporting the implementation of Nauru’s NSDS, 2005–2025. A key economic priority under the NSDS is to improve PSM 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 NSDS priorities.
