Regional : Digital Twin Capabilities in Project Management

Sovereign Project | 54112-001

The Digital Twin Capabilities in Project Management initiative, originally approved in May 2020, has been instrumental in supporting the Nauru Sustainable Climate-Resilient Connectivity Project. Utilizing digital twin technology, the project aims to enhance project management by remotely capturing and analyzing onsite data, monitoring implementation progress, and identifying risks. The current phase involves a proposed increase in the technical assistance (TA) amount by $650,000 and a significant expansion in scope to support energy and urban projects in the Marshall Islands and the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM).
