The Government of the Kingdom of Tonga intends to prepare a national long-term low greenhouse gas emissions development strategy (LT-LEDS), to be communicated to the UNFCCC by the twenty-sixth Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC or COP26.


Relative Creative are lead collaborators along with ClimateWorks Australia and Global Green Growth Institute in supporting Tonga in achieving their vision. The LT-LEDS will articulate a long-term vision and direction for the future of Tonga in a low-carbon world, and in a changing climate. The process will involve a design-led and culturally-led facilitated dialogue process with key Tongan stakeholders, supported by expert analysis and advice. Relative Creative bring our expertise in participatory tools, design and facilitation to the dialogues.  We will co-design the dialogues, support the Tongan facilitators and professionally design visual communication product outputs over the rest of 2020. As much as we’d have loved to be in Tonga doing this work, covid-19 has restricted our travel into Tonga and any other Pacific country to ensure covid does not spread.
