ADB's Pacific Approach 2010-2014
The rationale behind formulating a new Pacific Approach for 2010–2014 is summarized as follows.
• The Pacific Approach provides alignment between the region’s Pacific Plan and ADB’s long-term strategic framework 2008–2020 (Strategy 2020).
• The Pacific Approach sets overall strategic directions for operations in the Pacific, including how reforms would be undertaken.
• The Pacific Approach recognizes the need to respond with greater awareness to the complex fragile situations particular to most Pacific DMCs.
• Knowledge solutions, including better practice models, can be identified for replication within the region.
• Public goods and services provided at the regional level can exploit economies of scale.
• A common framework can address similar social, cultural, and political binding constraints to growth and development, similar opportunities and development risks; and derive regional approaches to support growth and development, including the need to engage in nontraditional sectors for private sector operations.
• The Pacific Approach also recognizes the need to improve development effectiveness in anticipation of a possible substantial increase in ADB’s assistance to the region.
