ADB's Pacific Approach 2010-2014
Asian Development Bank | June 2009
The Pacific is a region of great diversity but it is also a region of common problems and issues. Each country has unique characteristics, so country partnership strategies are prepared for each DMC. However, despite their diff erences, similarities in culture, traditions, history, and geography mean that they face many common development challenges as well as opportunities for cooperation and coordination. An ADB study of the case for further regionalism supported the formulation of the Pacifi c Plan.1 A signifi cant common feature is that most Pacifi c DMCs exhibit fragile situations.2 ADB’s approach to assisting the Pacifi c (Th e Pacifi c Approach) addresses these common challenges and opportunities, and seeks to identify where and how regional approaches and common guidelines can be used to improve the eff ectiveness of development assistance. Th e Pacifi c Approach addresses broad, strategic concerns.
