LAGOON FOR GENERATIONS
LAGOON FOR GENERATIONS
The Tongatapu Lagoon is sheltered and is shaped like a horseshoe with a number of villages on its coast. It has been a source of livelihood for these villages but in recent years there has been a deterioration in its marine biodiversity and water quality. Villagers can no longer fish or bathe in the lagoon.
This project is being implemented by the Free Wesleyan Youth Group of the village of Halaleva. Their main objective is to restore the lagoon to its pristine state and ensure that resources are sustainably used. They plan to achieve this through promotion of environmentally sound practices in the management of marine resources, address waste management issues in Halaleva and neighbouring villages, awareness workshops to promote sustainabale land use practices and rehabilitation of its mangrove forests.

An incorporated approach to resource management; particularly to address the key driver of waste management, forest degradation, unsustainable agricultural practices, awareness at communities and schools, and link this to the Environment Plan that already exists. (National Biodiversity Strategy & Action Plan)
