Overall Summary: 
The Vanuatu Infrastructure Strategic Investment Plan 2015 – 2024 (VISIP 2015) sets out an optimal set of strategic infrastructure investments for Vanuatu. Further, it suggests how to fund and implement these investments, and recommends institutional developments for planning effective, practical, and sustainable, infrastructure in the context of identified and expected financing over the coming decade. VISIP 2015 will be considered for adoption with the National Sustainable Development Plan (NSDP). To establish full coherence with the NSDP and comprehensively address the issues facing the country, the VISIP includes social infrastructure in addition to economic infrastructure.

National policy structure: 
There is a lack of clear, comprehensive, and rational planning for infrastructure in Vanuatu[...] There are no currently approved spatial or physical development plans for any part of Vanuatu [...] To alleviate these shortcomings, the sector planning policy framework will be strengthened to allow for developing or updating sector plans, especially in investment heavy economic and social sectors: [...] energy, [...] climate change and disaster management, [...]. Updated sector plans will include an inventory of the existing asset base, with their conditions and the prioritised demand for infrastructure improvement
