building-coastal-protectionA ground-breaking ceremony was held in the community of Talafo’ou in eastern Tongatapu on 15 August to celebrate the beginning of a project that will contribute to protecting vulnerable coastal communities (Talafo’ou, Manuka, Makaunga, Kolonga, Navutoka and Nukuleka) from the impacts of climate change, especially sea-level rise. Interventions in these coastal communities have been prioritised under Tonga’s Joint National Action Plan for Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Management, 2010–2015. This coastal protection project is part of the Global Climate Change Alliance: Pacific Small Island States (GCCA:PSIS) project funded with EUR 11.4 million by the European Union. It is implemented regionally by the Secretariat of the Pacific Community and nationally by each of the participating governments.
