The University of the South Pacific and the Asian Development Bank have teamed up to share knowledge and expertise to further their work in the region. 

The two organisations signed a five year cooperation agreement in Manila this month. 

The university's vice chancellor and president, Rajesh Chandra, says there are various plans including holding workshops on economic policy as well as a focus on renewable energy, with a 20 million dollar proposal to convert six campuses to solar power. 

He told Sara Vui-Talitu more about what they hope to achieve.
