Safeguarding rural communities and their physical assets from climate induced disasters in Timor-Leste

Addressing the underlying causes of vulnerability of social and physical rural infrastructure and addressing a limited capacity to generate and use information about climate risks.

Timor-Leste’s socioeconomic and ecological systems are fragile. Extreme weather events cause severe damage to infrastructure, incurring yearly economic losses of around USD 250 million as a result of landslides, floods, erosion and drought. 

This project will strengthen the capacity of institutions to assess and manage climate risks and to implement, finance and maintain local infrastructure services. Monitoring of climate risk information will be enhanced. In addition, climate resilient building measures will improve small-scale rural infrastructure in vulnerable areas.

This project has an estimated lifespan of 6 years.
