Tonga Fact Sheet – Climate Resilient Islands

The Climate Resilient Islands Programme is working with rural communities in Vanuatu, Fiji, Tonga, Tuvalu, PNG and Solomon Islands to strengthen community resilience to the impacts of climate change through nature-based approaches. The Programme has three interconnected outcome areas:

  1. Protection, restoration and maintenance of ecosystems
  2. Climate resilient food systems
  3. Strengthened preparedness to intensified natural hazards

Communities engaged in the Programme determine priorities and pathways to strengthened resilience through pathways such as:

  • Intergenerational Indigenous knowledge sharing
  • Protected marine and conservation areas
  • Restoration and strengthening of Indigenous resilient local food systems
  • Access to small grants to strengthen or establish community livelihoods

The Climate Resilient Islands Programme is funded by the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs & Trade and implemented by Live & Learn Environmental Education.
