ADB's Work in Solomon Islands

Community transmission of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), related containment restrictions, and damage from social unrest in 2021 hampered economic activity in Solomon Islands during 2022. To support economic recovery, ADB is assisting the Government of Solomon Islands to invest in transport, water supply, energy, urban infrastructure and services, education, health, and public sector management.

To date, ADB has committed 121 public sector loans, grants, and technical assistance totaling $421.9 million to Solomon Islands.
