Economic Growth and Trade

USAID’s Avansa Agrikultura Project 

USAID’s Avansa Agrikultura Project is accelerating sustainable economic growth in the agriculture sector.  In three years, farm income has increased by 700 percent and women's and children's nutrition has improved.  At the end of the project, USAID anticipates some 5,500 households will be earning higher incomes with improved nutrition and better managed economic assets.  USAID has adopted lessons learned from previous projects working with farmers, buyers, and communities.  The long-term sustainability will be ensured by strengthening the links between the private sector and local partners that deliver services to rural farmers.

Governance

USAID’s The Consortium for Elections and Political Process Strengthening Project

Timor-Leste is one of the world’s youngest countries and while a beacon of democracy in South East Asia, the country’s institutional capacity remains weak. Government responsiveness to citizens is low, though citizens are eager for more engagement.  USAID’s development strategy focuses on improving the government’s ability to deliver key public services, strengthening sub-national institutions to respond to citizen needs and increasing community and citizen engagement with government and local institutions. USAID helps Timor-Leste become more prosperous, healthy and democratic.  USAID’s focus on increasing the capacity to deliver responsive services at the country’s national and sub-national levels improves the quality of governance.

Education

All Children Reading

USAID's All Children Reading project combines innovative teacher training techniques with new Tetun-language educational materials. These teaching techniques and educational materials equip teacher with the skills and tools necessary to effectively teach young children to read. All Children Reading seeks to improve children's literacy and numeracy outcomes by enhancing access to relevant teaching and learning materials. In addition, All Children Reading supports related government agencies in decision-making and future planning to improve education statistic in Timor-Leste. 

Global Health

Human Resources for Health 2030

Timor-Leste’s current human resources for health (HRH) challenges include insufficient quantity, skill mix and distribution of qualified health workers, which can result in low performance and motivation among workers, and inequitable delivery of and access to quality services.  HRH2030 is working with the National Institute of Health (INS) to improve the quality and completeness of HRH data, and generate and share that high-quality data across all HRH stakeholders through an institutionalized, sustainable information system.  The project will also build the Government of Timor-Leste’s capacity to manage and strategically use these data to make evidence-informed decisions for planning, monitoring and allocating resources more efficiently and effectively.  These efforts will maximize HRH performance, fulfill the Timor-Leste Health Sector Strategic Plan and enable more Timorese to access quality health services and live healthier lives.
