Coordination assistance

The PRIF partners are committed to coordinating development partner activities and aligning these with country development strategies and country government systems for the planning, delivery and implementation of infrastructure services. PRIF aims to simplify and streamline advisory and funding process to reduce transaction costs for Pacific Island Countries.

PRIF aims to blend bilateral grant funding with funding from the MDBs, country partners and/or private sector equity/loan funding to finance the ‘whole of life’ costs of providing infrastructure services at sustainable standards as agreed between individual Pacific Island Countries and the PRIF development partners.

Strengthening of PRIF country partners’ capacity to plan, manage and deliver the operations and maintenance of infrastructure assets – including the capacity of their private sectors to supply infrastructure services – requires stable, long-term commitment from development and country partners.
