ADB's Work in Palau

The Pacific Approach, 2021-2025 of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) is the country partnership strategy for Palau, and focuses on building resilience against economic shocks, delivering sustainable services, and promoting inclusive and sustainable growth. It introduces new priorities for (i) a programmatic approach to climate change, (ii) longer-term capacity support, (iii) procurement flexibilities, and (iv) an emphasis on gender equality.

In 2021, ADB provided $25 million in budget support loans under a systems and expenditure support program to assist Palau in strengthening policy and legislative frameworks for public financial management, reducing fiscal risks from weak public sector asset management, and supporting private sector development. ADB also committed a $3.7 million grant for COVID-19 assistance to support affected vulnerable groups in Palau including the elderly and persons with disabilities, enhance food security, and address gender-based violence.
