More awareness needed on climate change

Radio & TV Tonga, Nuku’alofa, 06/08/2019

The Climate Change Department of the Ministry of MEIDECC is pushing for more awareness on the issue of climate change around the country.

Last week wrapped up Climate Change Awareness month with a team from the department visiting communities in the outer islands to discuss the impacts of climate change and what actions they can take to build a more resilient community.

The team leader – Fololita Sila says awareness is very much needed to build the country’s resilience to climate change because they found in their visits that there is very little knowledge on this issue in the rural communities around the country, particularly the outer islands.
