Pacific disaster risk finance and insurance in the Kingdom of Tonga: post-disaster budget execution guidelines

Pacific disaster risk finance and insurance in the Kingdom of Tonga: post-disaster budget execution guidelines

The purpose of these guidelines is to provide a desk reference to be used by the staff of the Ministry of Finance and National Planning (MoFNP) and the National Emergency Management Office (NEMO) during a period of disaster response. The guidelines are designed to provide a simple action-checklist to assist in ensuring that funds for disaster relief and recovery from the various financing instruments and sources available are accessed and disbursed as quickly and effectively as possible.

It is important, however, that even in a post-disaster situation, standards of transparency and accountability are not compromised. The guidelines therefore also include references to relevant disaster-related legislation; relevant sections of legislation and regulations, including Treasury Instructions, related to post-disaster financing are provided in Schedules 1, 2 and 3 for ease of further reference.
