Food Security Strategies for the Kingdom of Tonga

The study objective was to assess the food security situation in Tonga and the problems faced, to identify effective strategies and to help formulate appropriate policy options for solving respective problems. Food security at the national, regional and household levels is most vulnerable to natural disasters of tropical cyclones, droughts, pest outbreaks, or a combination of these threats. The study also found that unless key players in many of the research areas and information needs are identified, the chance to implement many of the desired activities is very slim. It was also evident that there might be a possibility for regional cooperation on strategies for food security or on aspects like coping systems or involvement of youths in food production.
