Tonga Millennium Development Goals Report 2010
This second status report reviews progress, according to the updated guidelines on MDG reporting formulated in the 2009 Addendum on MDG reporting. To the extent possible, a trend analysis was carried out to highlight status and progress on the MDGs. The report intends to offer an analytical perspective of Tonga’s progress to date; including an analysis of what is working and what isn’t, taking into account new challenges such as the global economic and financial crises.
This effort was spearheaded by the national MDG Taskforce and the MDG Technical Committee, with support of national and international consultants. The MDG Taskforce provided the necessary leadership to catalyze action and direction of the work presented. The Technical Committee was responsible for data collection among official sources, and in particular among line ministries.
