7 October 2014
Consultations are underway in the villages as part of the review for a new plan to help improve the quality of life for Tokelau.
NUKUNONU’s SOLAR ARRAY SYSTEM: Tokelau is the first nation in the world to become 100% renewable energy dependent.
A new plan will not change Tokelau’s aspiration, values and priorities; rather enforcing it to focus on urgent delivery of key results in the Tokelau National Strategic Plan 2010-2015 (TNSP).
The new plan idea was agreed to by each Taupulega (village council
) after the New Zealand Foreign Affairs Minister, Murray McCully highlighted the need for a consolidated approach by New Zealand and Tokelau Government in addressing key issues and ensuring results and outcomes are urgently met.
The team conducting the work is led by the Ulu o Tokelau, Aliki Faipule Kuresa Nasau and Administrator of Tokelau, Jonathan Kings.
The plan would be considered by the General Fono (Parliament
) in December.
