Asian Development Bank and Vanuatu: Fact Sheet

The ADB program in Vanuatu has provided loans, grants and technical assistance to grow the country’s economy and improve the lives of people, particularly the poor, women, children and other vulnerable groups.

Vanuatu joined ADB in 1981 and has since received over $178 million for loans, grants, and technical assistance projects.

The successful implementation of critical infrastructure projects remains a key focus for ADB in Vanuatu. ADB will prioritize support for greater energy efficiency and renewable energy sources. Resources will also be directed to improve transport connectivity to markets and social services, expand access to sanitation and drainage facilities, and improve urban infrastructure.  

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