dc.description.abstractThis project is intended to present an overview of how the Tongan Agricultural Sector operates, its challenges and opportunities including the impact of climate change. The three main areas of consideration are Food Security, opportunities for sustainable Import Substitution, and Exports were explored. The numerous recommendations were identified, grouped and then analysed for their feasibility from a pre-project analysis viewpoint. The high level economic and demographic factors in Tonga are well canvased in extensive literature and a summary is available in the supporting Literature Review and in the Tonga Context Section 2 of this report. Within the context of this report the following economic and demographic factors affecting Tonga’s agricultural development includes a significant balance of trade deficit, slowly declining population, a heavy reliance upon remittances for consumption expenditure and a food consumption pattern this is contributing to Non-Communicable Diseases as well as a balance of trade deficit. Section 3 looks at the impact of RSE schemes, migration and remittances upon agricultural development in Tonga. Enabling frameworks and MAFF’s role are also looked at.en_NZ
