Tonga CRSP Semi-Annual Safeguard Monitoring Report No.3 July-December 2017

This document reports the monitoring of the Social and Environmental Safeguards of the Climate Resilience Sector Project (CRSP) for the period of July 2017 to December 2017. During this reporting period, the ESU has monitored the CRSP project activities, identifying challenges and measures to address these challenges as well as proposed activities for the next period of activities. This is summarized below in Table 2: Safeguards Activities.

Key outcomes highlighted in this report indicate that the project and its subprojects are largely on-track to meet the requirements of ADB Social and Environmental Safeguards. Sub-projects: Mangrove Rehabilitation; and Meteorological are on schedule compared to the last report. Gender dimensions of Climate Change activities are a crosscutting component, which is addressed under a Gender Action Plan (GAP). This key area has improved by a coordinated approach with more strategic activities that encompass efforts to build social and environmental resilience to climate change.
