Asian Development Bank and Vanuatu: Fact Sheet
Asian Development Bank | June 2013
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. The Asian Development Bank (ADB) cooperates with government counterparts and development partners. ADB supports government dialogue and consultation with stakeholders, including traditional leaders, local governments, the private sector, churches, civil society, and community groups. ADB works with development partners to develop innovative approaches and uses cofinancing partnerships to reduce financing costs. In partnership with the New Zealand Aid Programme, ADB has developed the Interisland Shipping Support Project, focused on better access to markets and social services in outer island areas, stronger safety regulations and better compliance, and improved shipping infrastructure. Additionally, ADB, in partnership with the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID), has developed the Port Vila Urban Development Project, which will contribute to social development by improving drainage, roads, and sanitation systems in Port Vila and adjacent urban and peri-urban areas of Shefa Province.
