Radio & TV Tonga, Nuku’alofa, 18/01/2018

 

Different Climate Change projects in Tonga will soon benefit from the Climate Change Trust Fund or CCTF –  funded by Asian Development Bank.

 

Representatives from these projects are currently participating in a training hosted by the Climate Change Department of the Ministry of MEIDECC.

 

The Project Coordinator of CCTF, Feleti Fa’otusia, says the training is one of the requirements from ADB in order for these projects to receive aid from CCTF.

 

This program is aimed to provide assistance to the communities affected by climate change.

 

With the completion of the training, the projects would be able to benefit from the CCTF and in turn enable their assistance to the communities, strengthening their resilience to Climate Change.

 

Thirty three projects in total are collaborating with the CCTF – of which 22 are in Tongatapu and the rest in Vava’u, Ha’apai, and ‘Eua.
