Disaster response

Australia hands over warehouse to support Tonga’s response to disasters

The warehouse is for the National Emergency Management Office (NEMO) and its humanitarian partners in Tonga, to be better prepared to support Tongan communities with their relief efforts in the event of a disaster.

The CEO of MEIDECC, Paula Ma’u said, “the new NEMO warehouse was designed and built, to consider the hazards that Tonga is prone to, such as tropical cyclones, earthquakes, tsunami and droughts, and to hopefully withstand some of these extreme elements.”
