ADB's engagement with FCAS and SIDS
In line with its efforts to eradicate extreme poverty and build a prosperous, inclusive, resilient, and sustainable Asia and the Pacific, ADB prioritizes support for the poorest and most vulnerable countries in the region, including FCAS and SIDS. The increasing complexities of national and subnational fragility require focused responses to ensure lasting development gains.
ADB FCAS and SIDS operations use nonstandard, tailored approaches, including flexible business processes, strengthened human resources and field presence, and in-depth analytics to better understand multidimensional drivers of fragility and apply this knowledge to investments. ADB brings added value through diverse long-term concessional financing instruments designed to support these challenging environments.
