The Pacific Aviation Investment Program (PAIP) is funded by the World Bank (WB), participating countries, and other donor partners with the development objective to:
- improve the safety, security, efficiency, management and environmental sustainability of airports, and
- improve regional harmonization of aviation safety standards.
As part of the regional PAIP, aimed primarily at improving airport safety and security across the Pacific, the Solomon Island Road and Aviation Project (SIRAP) has been established.
Through SIRAP, the Solomon Island Government (SIG) and the WB are working together to improve operational safety and oversight of air transport, and strengthen the climate resilience of the road and aviation sectors in the Solomon Islands (SI).
