Joining PRIF partners in 2013, Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) is the organization in charge of implementing Japan’s official development assistance. JICA has helped a wide range of infrastructure development in the Pacific Island countries through technical cooperation and financial (both grant and loan) cooperation. JICA’s strategy in the Pacific region includes; (i) Implementation of the Free and Open Indo-Pacific by supporting the maritime sectors such as harbors and vessels, (ii) Resolution and mitigation of vulnerabilities addressing climate change, natural disasters, and environmental issues including solid waste management; and (iii) Self-sufficient and sustainable development by supporting the infrastructure, such as airports, roads, bridges and renewable energy.
