Closed Compact Report: Vanuatu Closed Compact | October 2020

Compact Changes

Due to escalating global construction costs, currency fluctuations, and delays in mobilizing implementing entities and contractors, the Infrastructure Activity was restructured in early 2008. The Efate Ring Road (92.5 kilometers) and the Santo East Coast Road (57.2 kilometers) became the focus of the restructured compact.

By the end of the compact, a portion of the Institutional Strengthening Activity was re-scoped due to the GoV’s inability to meet certain milestones related to the implementation of effective policies and procedures that would have supported efficient road maintenance fund management. The activity budget was reduced, and funds were reallocated to the Infrastructure Activity.
