Environment
Tonga has been severely affected by heavy rains, cyclones, and soil erosion. 80% of the population lives on the coastline, and rising sea levels caused by climate change could destroy homes and displace thousands.1 Because of the small amounts of industry in Tonga, it must rely on larger countries to slow climate change in order for the islands to survive.1 The Ministry of Environment and Climate Change in Tonga has the goal of protecting the environment and providing a high standard of life for the next generation, and much of their work involves conservation efforts and diplomacy.2

Tonga has a small, open, South Pacific island economy. It has a narrow export base in agricultural goods. Squash, vanilla beans, and yams are the main crops. Agricultural exports, including fish, make up two-thirds of total exports. The country must import a high proportion of its food, mainly from New Zealand. The country remains dependent on external aid and remittances from Tongan communities overseas to offset its trade deficit. Tourism is the second-largest source of hard currency earnings following remittances. Tonga had 39,000 visitors in 2006. The government is emphasizing the development of the private sector, especially the encouragement of ...See More investment, and is committing increased funds for health and education. Tonga has a reasonably sound basic infrastructure and well developed social services. High unemployment among the young, moderate inflation, pressures for democratic reform, and rising civil service expenditures are major issues facing the government. Show Less ;
