Implementation of the revised 2013-14 budget is currently under
discussion with partner governments and organisations.
Australia's Partnership for Development with Tuvalu aims to raise the standard of living of Tuvaluans
and help the country adapt to the negative impacts of climate change. Australia is helping to boost Tuvalu’s long-term economic prospects by making contributions to the
Tuvalu Trust Fund and improving financial management and planning. We are also helping to develop a skilled Tuvalu workforce by providing support for early education and
opportunities for tertiary study.
Australia has invested $34.5 million dollars in Tuvalu in the previous three years. Some of the key results include:
- providing all primary and early childhood centres with essential textbooks and stationery
- providing 607 water tanks to residents on Tuvalu’s main island, which ensures 85 per cent of residents have access to clean water.
More results can be viewed under the ‘See our results’ tab above.
Australia expects to provide $11.6 million in development assistance to Tuvalu in 2013-14. Australia remains committed to delivering results in Tuvalu and our development
assistance is expected to have a resounding impact in future years. We will work with the Government of Tuvalu and UNICEF to increase the number of primary school students
who pass secondary school entrance examinations and continue to help Tuvalu adapt to climate change, including through supporting coastal protection and improving water
supply and storage. More on expected outcomes can be viewed under the ‘See our results’ tab above.
