Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and National Statistical System (NSS)

Tonga is working towards achieving its part in multiple international and regional frameworks: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development Goals, SAMOA Pathway, Addis Ababa Agreement, SENDAI Framework, Unite Nations Pacific Strategy (UNPS) 2018 – 2022, the International Organization for Migration to name a few; and is currently contributing its part in the region to the development of the Blue Pacific Continent 2050 strategy.

As with the Tonga Strategic Development Framework (TSDF) II, the NSS is needed to help inform on our progress on these international / regional / national  frameworks. While the National Planning division has aligned the SDG Agenda 2030 goals with the national outcomes of the TSDF II, the Statistics Department is needed in the mobilization and coordination of the NSS in-order to provide quality information on the SDGs targets and indicators which will help effectively monitor and evaluate the progress we are making in each goal.
