Asian Development Bank and Solomon Islands: Fact Sheet
ADB works closely with the Government of Solomon Islands on development strategy, transport infrastructure, private sector development, promotion of renewable energy sources, and public finance management reforms and macroeconomics.
ADB has been supporting Solomon Islands since 1973 and has committed $125.4 million in loans, $171.7 million in grants, and $31.5 million in technical assistance.
With its population dispersed over more than 900 small islands, transport is a key development priority for Solomon Islands. ADB supports the government’s National Transport Plan, which calls for integrated planning, environmental and social sustainability, and infrastructure resilient to natural disasters and climate change. ADB is also working with development partners 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.
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.
