Asian Development Bank and Nauru: Fact Sheet

The ADB approach in Nauru is to emphasize the need for a flexible response, longer-term engagement, and the importance of capacity development.

ADB supports Nauru to strengthen its public financial management, raise the performance of state-owned enterprises, improve equitable service delivery, and address the country’s considerable infrastructure needs.

Proactive engagement—along with a consultative and participatory approach by ADB—helps to ensure local buy-in and commitment to ADB activities. To encourage reform implementation, ADB often provides direct assistance or coordinates with other development partners to provide appropriate support. Nauru will 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.

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