This paper from the World Bank aims to assess the extent to which disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation have taken place in Timor-Leste.
"The assessment goes on to identify gaps or impediments to achieving the Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA) principles and identifies opportunities for future DRR/CCA investments that would be timely, cost-effective, and implementable within a three-year timeframe.
This assessment highlights aspects such as the current country status; gaps, opportunities, and barriers related to (a) national policies, strategies, plans, and activities to manage natural hazards; (b) the enabling environment for a comprehensive risk management approach to natural hazards; and (c) the capacity to undertake such a comprehensive approach, including institutional arrangements, human resources, public awareness, information, and national budget allocations."
