Sione Faka’osi

Since March 2007, Sione has been the Executive Director for the Tonga Community Development Trust, a nonprofit organization working with disadvantaged communities to foster self reliance. Tonga Trust is implementing a number of community-based projects, ranging from health, water and sanitation to disaster preparedness, environmental protection, climate change adaptation, good governance, democracy and voter education. Prior to joining Tonga Trust, Sione was a National Project Coordinator in Tonga’s Department of Environment for two consecutive regional projects. Firstly, the Ha’apai Conservation Area Project under the South Pacific Biodiversity Conservation Program (SPBCP) from 1995-2001. Secondly, the Nukuhetulu Waste Reduction Pilot Project under the Strategic Program for the International Waters of the South Pacific (IWP) from 2002 to 2007. Both programs (SPBCP and IWP) used a community-based participatory approach to conservation and were funded by GEF, implemented by UNDP and executed by SPREP. Sione holds a Master of Arts in Sociology since 1994 from the Australian National University, Canberra, Australia.
