UNDP in collaboration with the Regional Secretary for Agriculture organized a Farmers Field Day on 9th of June 2021 in Toip-Ana, to celebrate the harvesting of rice grown using the Jajar Legowo 2:1 System (JLS).
Ms. Rosa Salsinia Decosta, who lives in Tarabula (Maulau), a small village in Maubisse, Ainaro Municipality, says that in her 70 years of life she never saw so much rain and for so long as in the Easter Weekend.
Dili looked sunny and brighter on the morning I drove around to see the impact of floods caused by the torrential rain that happened during Easter week. Some major roads that were flooded had already been cleaned from debris allowing me to travel to some of our most visited tourist destinations in Dili.
Crises such as pandemics and natural disasters can greatly increase communal and familial stress and tension. The emotional and social repercussions of these pressures can worsen the situation of people at risk of gender-based violence (GBV) and abuse.
