ADB's Work in Maldives

Typical of small island nations, Maldives has a limited human resource pool that makes capacity constraints more challenging, and affects the planning and implementation of some of the ADB-supported projects in the country. To address this, ADB has been extending technical assistance for strengthening the institutional capacity and skills of the government for country programming, interagency coordination, and portfolio management.

To date, ADB has committed 117 public sector loans, grants, and technical assistance totaling $529 million to Maldives.
