National Infrastructure Strategic Plan (NISP)

The National Infrastructure Plan (NISP) delineates the Government of Samoa’s priorities and strategic directions for major initiatives in the economic infrastructure sector over the next 5-10 years. This focuses on the basic infrastructure facilities that support everyday life and business activity, such as electricity, water, transport and communications. It is the by-product of extensive consultation with infrastructure managers, users and development partners.

The NISP focuses on priorities for major infrastructure initiatives in the following sectors:

  • Energy
  • Telecommunications
  • Water and Waste related services
  • Transport

NISP is closely linked to the Strategic for the Development of Samoa 20012-2016 (SDS) and its vision of “…mproved quality of life for all“
