Project Description

According to ADB website, the context of the TA stems from ADB transport sector work since the early 2000s and recognition that the government struggles with understanding and applying safeguards systems. With Japan Fund for Poverty Reduction (JFPR) assistance, ADB has been supporting the Solomon Islands government to strengthen its environment and social safeguards through TA 8217-SOL, which is an 18-month TA that commenced in April 2013. The core participants are: (i) the Environment and Conservation Department (ECD) within the Ministry of Environment, Climate Change, Disaster Management, and Meteorology (MECDM); (ii) the Ministry of Lands, Housing and Survey (MLHS); and (iii) the Ministry of Infrastructure Development (MID).
