Abstract: This work carried out in Tonga established the design and implementation of a mixed method study to address the perceived impact of climate change on livelihoods, health and well-being in order to inform adaptation strategies for coastal communities. The multimethodological approach developed here is a Concurrent Convergence Parallel Triangulation Design (CCPTD), which was delivered to 460 participants aged 15 to 75 in five coastal communities on Tongatapu Island: Kanokupolu, ‘Ahau, Tukutonga, Popua and Manuka.
