Pacific Approach, 2016-2020

Institutional Document | August 2016

The Pacific Approach, 2016–2020 serves as the operational framework of ADB for the Pacific region and the overall country partnership strategy for the 11 smaller Pacific island countries.

It outlines a three-pronged strategy that focuses on reducing costs, managing risks, and enabling value creation. These three strategic priorities are applicable to all Pacific island countries and are especially relevant for the PIC-11. It is intended to be read in conjunction with the PIC-11 country operations business plans and associated country strategic analyses, as well as the regional operations business plan for the Pacific region.
