Thematic Evaluation Study: ADB Support to Pacific Small Island States (Complete Report)
dc.description.abstractThis evaluation assesses the Asian Development Bank’s (ADB’s) strategy and development operations in 10 Pacific island countries: Cook Islands, Federated States of Micronesia (FSM), Kiribati, Nauru, Palau, Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI), Samoa, Tonga, Tuvalu, and Vanuatu (PIC-10). These are among the world’s smallest and most remote countries on earth with a combined population of less than one million (see map). In 2011, the Pacific Approach 2010–2014, ADB’s regional strategy for the Pacific, which includes all 14 Pacific developing member countries, the PIC-10 plus Fiji, Papua New Guinea (PNG), Solomon Islands, and Timor-Leste, also became the country partnership strategy to guide its operations in the PIC-10. The smallest Pacific countries therefore share a common strategic approach. The focus of the evaluation is the relevance of the Pacific Approach for meeting the development needs of the PIC-10, the extent to which it was implemented over the evaluation period and whether it has made a difference to results. Operations in ADB’s larger Pacific country members, Fiji, PNG, Solomon Islands, and Timor-Leste, are not assessed as part of this report. Findings in the study are supported by field missions in Cook Islands, FSM, Kiribati, Samoa, Tonga, Tuvalu, and RMI, a review of Pacific literature, ADB project completion reports (PCRs) and their independent validations, Pacific evaluation reports, and consultations with ADB staff and other stakeholders.
