We’re working with the Asian Development Bank to support upgrades to two of Tuvalu's critical boat harbours.
The project will construct new facilities at Niutao and Nui Island Harbour, including a navigation channel, boat ramp, passenger terminal, cargo shed and shoreline reclamation.

The works include accessibility and safety improvement measures such as separate disability access toilets for men and women, 24-hour solar lighting, guard rails and signage on the jetties.
The upgrades will bolster connectivity for passengers and cargo travelling between Tuvalu’s capital and the outer islands of Nui and Niutao.
This essential infrastructure will also strengthen Tuvalu's resilience to climate change and deliver significant local job opportunities, including opportunities for women.
Our financing package includes $21.4 million in co-financing to the Asian Development Bank.
