Asian Development Bank and Nauru: Fact Sheet

ADB’s recent development efforts in Nauru have helped the government address considerable infrastructure needs, strengthen public financial management, raise the performance of state-owned enterprises, and improve the delivery of essential services.

ADB has been supporting Nauru since 1991, and has committed a loan of $5 million, grants totaling $97.61 million, and technical assistance projects worth $6.96 million.

As part of its projected development program for Nauru, ADB intends to provide a policy-based grant in support of ongoing reforms to promote greater fiscal sustainability, strengthen public financial management, and improve service delivery. Nauru will also continue to benefit from regional technical assistance programs supported by ADB, including developing a new sustainable infrastructure strategy and updating its National Sustainable Development Strategy.
