As stated by the ADB, the TA will support the implementation of Pacific Region Infrastructure Facility (PRIF) for a further 4-year period from 1 January 2024 until 31 December 2027. This will be the fifth phase of the PRIF. The TA design draws on independent PRIF Phase 4 mid-term review findings, preliminary findings of an independent review of the National Infrastructure Investment Plan (NIIP), and extensive consultations with its management committee of eight development partners.
PRIF is a multi-partner coordination and TA facility established in 2008 to improve the quality and coverage of infrastructure and service delivery for its 14 Pacific member countries. PRIF is managed by Pacific Region Infrastructure Coordination Office (PRIF CO).
During the proposed PRIF Phase 5, PRIF CO will continue to support the goal of improved quality and coverage of infrastructure with a new emphasis on infrastructure quality principles and greater climate and socioeconomic resilience. It will include an additional output focusing on climate resilience activities. Additionally, it will mainstream cross-cutting themes, including gender equality and social inclusion (GESI), regional integration, private sector participation, and sustainable infrastructure management across all PRIF activities and engagements.
Infrastructure sectors and thematic areas included under PRIF phase 4 are (i) energy; (ii) environmental and social; (iii) information and communications technology; (iv) sustainable infrastructure management; (v) transport; (vi) urban development; (vii) water and sanitation.

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.
