Asian Development Bank and the Marshall Islands: Fact Sheet

Recent ADB efforts in the Marshall Islands have focused on improving governance, developing the private sector, and expanding clean water supply and sanitation.

The government has sought ADB assistance with development issues on the country’s outer islands, and to further improve the quality of basic education. ADB will support integrated strategic planning for investments in renewable energy and the institutional strengthening of the Ministry of Finance. Future ADB operations will also be complemented by regional technical assistance programs, particularly in the areas of economic management, private sector development, and public sector management.

ADB has been working with the Government of the Marshall Islands since 1990 and has approved 14 loans for $92.63 million, 6 grants for $11.26 million, and 52 technical assistance projects worth $22.17 million.

Updated yearly, this ADB Fact Sheet provides social and economic indicators on the Marshall Islands as well as concise information on ADB's operations in the country and contact information.
