The project will help Tuvalu overcome connectivity constraints between the capital and outer islands, and promote economic and social development that is more inclusive and sustainable. It will improve maritime facilities in the three outer islands of Nukulaelae, Nanumaga, and Niutao as well as strengthen the government’s capacity in operation and maintenance (O&M) and develop a transport sector master plan.
The outputs will be (i) a small-scale harbor constructed in Nukulaelae and the boat ramps of Nanumaga and Niutao rehabilitated; (ii) the capacity to operate and maintain harbors improved, involving the outer islands communities, MCT, and other relevant national government agencies; and (iii) a transport sector master plan for future harbor development in the outer islands created, with a view to promote fisheries and tourism.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can learn more about the Accountability Mechanism and how to file a complaint at: http://www.adb.org/site/accountability-mechanism/main
