In 2013 PRIF released a research report called “Infrastructure Maintenance in the Pacific: Challenging the Build-Neglect-Rebuild Paradigm” – this highlighted the lack of planning for maintenance and backlog of work in many countries. A key issue in good maintenance is the appropriate allocation and execution of budgets.
