Consolidating Cooperative Agribusiness Recovery In Timor-Leste

To support Timor-Leste to sustainably reduce poverty and undernutrition, USAID projects assist Timorese farmers to move away from subsistence agriculture towards more diversified, income-generating farming and to link with domestic and international markets. USAID projects also align with the Government of Timor-Leste (GOTL) objective to support the transition from subsistence to commercial farming and to increase the production and productivity of key agricultural commodities.

Education

USAID'S Timor-Leste Hillary Clinton Scholarship Program

USAID invests in human capacity in Timor-Leste through its Hillary Clinton Scholarship Program, which provides opportunities for Timorese students to complete skills-focused associate’s degree programs in the U.S. in fields of study such as accounting, agriculture, business, food technology, and management.

Global Health

Health Improvement Project (HADIAK)

USAID's Health Improvement Project (HADIAK) focuses on maternal, neonatal and child health system strengthening, with a particular emphasis on helping district-level health committees prepare for and support the eventual de-concentration of GOTL health services. HADIAK does not provide direct service delivery, but instead equip GOTL's Ministry of Health (MOH) institutions with the improved organizational frameworks, human resources, and technical skills needed to implement the government's National Health Sector Strategic Plan (NHSSP).

Humanitarian Assistance

Disaster Risk Reduction (IOM-OFDA)

USAID's Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) activities in Timor-Leste are focused in five of the country's most disaster-prone districts.

Effective Seed Storage (OFDA)

USAID's Effective Seed Storage designs and develops sustainable and scalable seed storage models for Timor-Leste. Working with local manufacturers, USAID’s Effective Seed Storage prepares the market for its new metal-based seed storage system.

Enhancing Food and Nutrition Security and Reducing Disaster Risk Through the Promotion of Conservation Agriculture (OFDA)

USAID’s Enhancing Food and Nutrition Security and Reducing Disaster Risk through the Promotion of Conservation Agriculture grant enhances household food and nutrition security and improves rural livelihoods through a reduction in crop losses caused by the increasing frequency and severity of droughts, associated with climate change and variability, and leads to a more sustainable increase in agricultural productivity of the Timorese farmers.
