According to the bank's website, "Tuvalu is one of the smallest and most remote ADB member countries with a dispersed geography that imposes challenges in transport and economic development. Outer islands have no harbors for the government ships and small workboats ferry passengers and cargo from ship to shore. ADB has been providing financing assistance to Tuvalu to construct small workboat harbor in two outer islands (Nukulaelae and Niutao). The government has requested additional financing to construct an additional small workboat harbor in a different outer island (Nui). The proposed additional financing is (i) consistent with the project rationale, extending the project benefits to the outer island of Nui; and (ii) is included in the country operations business plan (COBP), 2020-2022 of the ADB."
The project's outcome is "Maritime transfer operations in Nanumaga, Nui, Niutao, and Nukulaelae improved, anchored on a transport master plan, with a view to promoting fisheries and tourism."
The project's outputs are:
Responsible ADB Officer Gonzalez Jimenez, Juan Francisco
Responsible ADB Department Pacific Department
Responsible ADB Division PATC
Executing Agencies Ministry of Finance (formerly Ministry of Finance and Economic Development)

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
