The Millennium Development Goals: Today and Tomorrow

The Millennium Development  Goals for Tonga emerges after the Millennium Declaration adopted by 147 countries at the UN Millennium Summit in September 2000.   The Prime Minister of Tonga, HRH, Prince 'Ulukalala Lavaka Ata re-affirmed  the participation of Tonga on  this global commitment towards development.

In 2003, the Government of Tonga established the MDGs Taskforce, chaired by the Secretary of Foreign Affairs, with membership comprising of the  Director of Planning, Director of Education, Director of Health, Secretary for Finance, Director of Environment, Head of the Women in Development Centre, Secretary General, Langafonua 'a Fafine Tonga, and the Government Statistician.

The mandate of the MDG Taskforce are:

bullet To oversee the Government of Tonga intermediate and long-term national strategy for achieving and coordinating the reporting obligation of the MDGs;

bullet That MDG Task Force report regularly to the Development Coordinating Committee and His Majesty's Cabinet on the progress of compiling
     Tonga's first status report to the Secretary-General of the United Nations on MDGs due at the end of 2004, and the long-term achievement of
     the MDGs by 2015; and

bullet That financial and technical assistance from government and relevant UN agencies are to be sought to assist with anticipated assigned
     tasks, when and as required.


This second status report reviews progress, according to the updated guidelines on MDG reporting formulated in the 2009 Addendum on MDG reporting.  To the extent possible, a trend analysis was carried out to highlight status and progress on the MDGs.  The report intends to offer an analytical perspective of Tonga's progress to date; including an analysis of what is working and what isn't, taking into account new challenges such as the global economic and financial crises.
