Call on princess to assist government’s attempts to get climate funding

The Tongan government wanted Princess Angelika to take action over what they say is the government’s “efforts to access the Green Climate Fund”.

This has been made through a request to the Princess in Nukuʻalofa today by Tonga’s Acting Prime Minister Siaosi Sovaleni while Her Royal Highness visited MEIDECC.

Hon Sovaleni told the Tongan High Commissioner in Canberra  the funding is monitored by a board that is co-chaired by Australia and South Africa.

A statement from MEIDECC said the Princess was visiting the  Ministry to discuss issues including:

  • A Possible tsunami evacuation drill for the Hihifo District;
  • The Climate Change projects that are currently being implemented, and are in the pipeline for the Hihifo District
  • Tree-planting initiatives both for coastal protection and food security
  • A possible Official visit to the Hihifo project implementation sites

The Acting Prime Minister and Minister of MEIDECC welcomed the Princess.

“We are fortunate to receive Your Royal Highness and your support on the implementation of climate change and disaster initiatives.

“The Ministry is looking forward to working together with your Royal Highness, and the Hihifo Community, to successfully implement climate change and disaster initiatives amongst other initiatives from the seven different departments of MEIDECC’

MEIDECC stands for Ministry of Meteorology, Energy, Information, Disaster Management, Environment, Climate Change & Communication.
