Tonga to upgrade disaster management systems

24 August, 2017. Tonga's government is to install more than 100 sirens nationwide as part of an upgrade of disaster management systems.

The Deputy Prime Minister Siaosi Sovaleni said $US25 million will be spent over the next three years.

Weather stations would be upgraded as part of the project and Mr Sovaleni said there would also be a consolidation of disaster and weather agencies.

"We believe in building our resilience and actually getting our preparedness up to a certain level. Also upgrading our systems, thats including early warning systems, computer systems, data basing and so forth."

"We're building a new office complex to actually house relevant stakeholders so that they are close to each other and hopefully having better information sharing and hopefully having a better overall view," he said.

Siaosi Sovaleni said the World Bank and Asian Development Bank are contributing funds towards the project.
