Pacific Partnership Facility

Institutional Document | April 2018

This paper describes a Pacific Partnership Facility designed to support ADB’s operations in the Pacific.

The Pacific Partnership Facility (PPF) will enable ADB to recruit additional staff, and provide flexible and responsive support for all of ADB’s Pacific operations. With more staff and stronger field presence, ADB will be better placed to not only scale up the Pacific operations, but also deliver more innovative and transformative projects, boost private sector transactions, leverage increased cofinancing, and lift implementation capacity. The PPF will also enrich the partnership between ADB and Australia. For the first time, there will be a Pacific facility that supports the overall Pacific program, including both public and private sector operations. The PPF will complement the project specific cofinancing.
