Tuvalu: Improved Fiscal and Infrastructure Management Program

Sovereign (Public) Project | 50377-001 Status: Proposed

The Government of Tuvalu recognizes that improved macroeconomic sustainability and public service delivery is critical given the development challenges that it faces. The knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will help implement and sustain the government's medium-term public sector management reform agenda by supporting efforts to improve public financial management practices and public service delivery.

The TA is a response to the government's request to address three specific reform gaps articulated under phase 4 of the PRM, building on earlier reforms supported by ADB. The implementation of these reforms will be anchored to ADB's pipeline policy-based operations. The reform areas are: i) Strengthening procurement compliance; ii) Strengthening public enterprise performance and management; and iii) Strengthening resilience through updated building codes.
