Asian Development Bank and Solomon Islands: Fact Sheet

ADB supports Solomon Islands’ National Transport Plan, which calls for integrated planning, environmental and social sustainability, and an infrastructure base that is resilient to natural disasters and climate change.

ADB has been supporting Solomon Islands since 1973 and has committed loans, grants and technical assistance totaling $317.60 million. With its population dispersed over more than 900 small islands, transport is a key development priority for Solomon Islands. ADB assistance has helped deliver tangible results for Solomon Islands’ transport systems.

ADB is planning to support the Tina River Hydro Development Project, which will generate electricity from renewable sources and provide more affordable and reliable energy options to Honiara. ADB will also continue to support transport infrastructure investments in line with the National Transport Plan.

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