Climate technology, plans and funding top of Tonga regional workshop agenda

A three-day workshop which began in Nuku’alofa yesterday was an opportunity for small Pacific countries to discuss climate technology, action plans and sources of funding so they could receive what available for them at  Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN).

CTCN is a new global network for climate technology solutions created by the  United Nations.

The international body took the lead in combating causes and effects of climate change with cleaner and low-carbon technologies.

“The Climate Technology Centre and Network works to accelerate the use of new technologies in improving the lives and livelihoods of millions of people in developing countries who are dealing with the impacts of climate change on a daily basis,” it says.

An official statement from Tongan government said  members would look at various technologies and technical supports available at CTCN for the region.

They would also look at best practices and experiences they can share in order to help them prepare national action plans that could meet CTCN requirements for  assistances it can offer.

They would also deliberate on how they can get funding for the intiative.

The workshop which runs from February 24 – 26 was the first regional workshop on Climate Technology for the small Pacific islands.

In his opening speech Tonga’s Deputy Prime Minister and Minister responsible for Climate Change, Honourable Siaosi Sovaleni said: “We, as Pacific countries wishes to access technology solutions, capacity building and advice on policy, legal and regulatory frameworks tailored to the needs of our individual countries”.

About 40 stakeholders from Tonga and around the regions attended the workshop.
