Tonga's Nationally Determined Contribution emphasizes the need for energy efficiency in the transport and electricity sectors due to their high share of GHG emission of about 63%. Tonga has requested CTCN fast technical assistance to further revise the Tonga Energy Efficiency Master Plan (TEEMP) to reflect the socio-economic benefits, cost-benefit analysis, time frame for interventions under TEEMP and economic contribution.

This Technology Transfer Advances Tonga's
- Nationally Determined Contribution to "improve energy efficiency through reduction of electricity line losses to 9 percent by 2020 (from a baseline of 18 percent in 2010)" and to work towards achieving its emission reduction targets for the transport, agriculture, waste and forest industry.

From today, developing countries will have stronger technology and financial backing to help meet their commitments to the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. This is thanks to a new agreement being signed between the Green Climate Fund and UN Environment, at the request of Parties to the Climate Convention.
Under the agreement, the Fund will collaborate with the Climate Technology Centre and Network to accelerate energy-efficient, low-carbon and climate-resilient developments.

AS DISCUSSED IN CHAPTER 1, SETTING TARGETS IS ONE MANIFESTATION OF POLITICAL COMMITMENT. COUNTRIES HAVE ALREADY MADE A SERIES OF COMMITMENTS TO ATTAIN global nutrition targets by 2025 (Panel 2.1). For maternal, infant, and young child nutrition, the 2012 World Health Assembly (WHA) set six targets for 2025. The Global Nutrition Report tracks five of these.1 The WHA also agreed on nine noncommunicable disease (NCD) targets, one of which—“Halt the rise in diabetes and obesity”—is tracked in this report via three indicators.

Following the Paris Agreement, the Climate Technology Centre & Network (CTCN) and the Technology Executive Committee (TEC) emphasized a focus on enhancement of endogenous capacities and technologies, RD&D, and climate technology financing. Both arms of the UNFCCC Technology Mechanism were represented at an event on climate technologies on 19 May at the UN climate change conference in Bonn to provide an overview of technology transfer in both the policy and implementation arenas.

The Green Climate Fund and the Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) are stepping up collaboration to accelerate the development and transfer of technologies for energy-efficient, low-carbon and climate-resilient development.
This partnership is well illustrated through the GCF Readiness Programme that has approved funding to support the governments of Ghana, Myanmar and Tonga in advancing green technology initiatives to be delivered by the Climate Technology Centre.
