Posted on 29 August 2022

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) have signed a joint agreement to help the Pacific better adapt and respond to climate and disaster impacts, pandemics, and economic shocks.

“ADB and USAID share similar goals in addressing development challenges in the region,” said ADB Director General for the Pacific Leah Gutierrez.
“This new partnership will provide for stronger collaboration in Pacific island countries as they continue to address climate change risks, strengthen efforts to mitigate and respond to disasters, and improve management of natural resources in the Pacific region.”
