August 16, 2014

The Asian Development Bank announced the sanctioning of a 15-million US dollar project to support Solomon Islands for the reestablishment of transport infrastructure damaged by last April's floods.

The assistance is drawn from ADB's Disaster Response Facility and is aimed at funding the construction of new infrastructure designed to be more resilient against future disasters and other climate threats.

In early April, prolonged heavy rain associated with Tropical Cyclone caused severe flooding in the capital, Honiara, and across Guadalcanal province, destroying roads and bridges and damaging water supply and sewage systems.
