Tonga is negatively affected by heavy annual rains and soil erosion.1 Because this has been a pervasive issue for the country, the government has taken steps to ensure the alleviation of the effects.2 In 2010, the Climate Change and Disaster Risk Management Joint National Action Plan was enforced and several adaptation projects have been completed.3 Tonga has received a $23 million grant from the Asian Development Bank in order to help complete the island's Climate Resilience Sector Project, which aims to implement climate resilient principles into national planning and policies.4 The grant will help to create ecosystem resilience.5

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 ;
