Solomon Islands: Transport Sector Development Project

Evaluation Document | 19 September 2018

In December 2010, ADB approved an Asian Development Fund (ADF) grant of $12 million for the Transport Sector Development Project that aimed to improve access to socioeconomic opportunities by rehabilitating and maintaining land, sea, and air transport infrastructure. The governments of Australia and New Zealand offered significant parallel grant cofinancing of $30 million each. The Government of the Solomon Islands was to provide $12.5 million to the National Transport Fund (NTF), which was also supported by development partners’ contributions. NTF was a vehicle for financing transport projects with available resources expected to gradually increase through government allocations and other bilateral grants.
