This wind pre-feasibility study is part of the support provided by the project - Coping with Climate Change in the Pacific Island Region (CCCPIR) \ to the Government of Tonga, through the Energy Division of the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change.

CCCPIR aims to build and strengthen the capacities of Pacific member countries and regional organizations to adapt to and mitigate, climate change impacts. The programme started in January 2009 and will end in December 2015.

The overall objective of CCCPIR is to strengthen the capacities of regional organizations in the Pacific Islands region and its member states to adapt to climate change and mitigate its causes. To achieve this objective, CCCPIR has six components: 1) strengthening regional advisory and management capacity, 2) mainstreaming climate considerations and
adaptation strategies, 3) implementing adaptation and mitigation measures, 4) sustainable tourism and climate change, 5) sustainable energy management and 6) climate change

The CCCPIR sustainable energy management component began in January 2012 in six countries: Fiji, Kiribati, Nauru, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu. Its objective is to strengthen the
climate-related services of public and private service providers in the energy sector and improve their focus on sustainability, reliability and cost-effectiveness in the energy sector
within the region.
