Executive Summary

Tonga is an archipelago composed of 172 islands spread across a combined land and sea area of 720,000km. According to the 2011 census, Tonga had a population of 103,252 people spread across 36 of the 172 islands. A population scattered so widely across such a large area can pose logistical problems for efforts to facilitate and finance disaster response.
