NGO GGGI – Tonga : National LT-LEDS Human Settlements Consultant

Based in Seoul, the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) is an intergovernmental organization founded to support and promote a model of economic growth known as « green growth », which targets key aspects of economic performance such as poverty reduction, job creation, social inclusion, and environmental sustainability. GGGI works with countries around the world, building their capacity and working collaboratively on green growth policies. The organization partners with countries, multilateral institutions, government bodies, and the private sector to help build growing economies that are more efficient and sustainable in the use of natural resources, are less carbon intensive, and more resilient to climate change. The Kingdom of Tonga became a member country of GGGI in December 2018.

The Government of the Kingdom of Tonga intends to prepare a national long-term low greenhouse gas emissions development strategy (LT-LEDS), to be communicated to the UNFCCC at the twenty-sixth Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC or COP26. The project is led by the Tonga Department of Climate Change under the Ministry for Meteorology, Energy, Information, Disaster Management, Environment, and Climate Change (MEIDECC), with support from ClimateWorks Australia (CWA), GGGI and Relative Creative (RC).

The LT-LEDS will articulate a long-term vision and direction for the future of Tonga in a low-carbon world and changing climate. The process of developing the LT-LEDS will strengthen and expand existing dialogue and governance processes, building capability within Tonga’s leadership for long-term thinking across different sectors. It is intended that the LT-LEDS will provide a vision and framework for other sectoral and national plans to align with over time.  In parallel with developing the LT-LEDS, this project has supported the development of Tonga’s enhanced Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) which was submitted to the UNFCCC in December 2020.  Developing the LT-LEDS and the NDC together enables alignment between the long-term vision and pathways, and the nearer term planning and investments.

The LT-LEDS development process involves a facilitated dialogue with key Tongan stakeholders, supported by expert analysis and advice in bringing the elements together into an LT-LEDS document owned by Tonga.
