    UNDP’s mangrove project ‘Building Shoreline Resilience of Timor-Leste to Protect the Local Community and Their Livelihoods’ also known as the Costal Resilience Building Project has successfully completed more than two years of operation in Timor Leste. The policy framework and institutional capacity for climate resilient coastal management, mangrove supportive livelihoods to incentivize mangrove restoration, and adoption of integrated approaches to coastal adaptation are the key outcomes that the project aims to achieve.

  • Safeguarding rural communities and their physical assets from climate induced disasters in Timor Leste
    Jan 7, 2019

    Timor Leste is a least developed country, a post-conflict society with a fast-growing population that remains dependent upon subsistence agriculture. Approximately 70 percent of Timor Leste’s 1.2 million people who live in rural areas are highly vulnerable to climate change. Impacts of intensified extreme events on critical rural infrastructure which damage and degrade assets, particularly water supply infrastructure, drainage, embankment and river protection structures, and community level feeder roads and bridges leave the rural population without the basic services and in full isolation.
