Timor-Leste National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA) Official Document - December 2010

The overarching vision set out in the NAPA is to make the Timorese people more resilient to climate change, recognizing their high vulnerability in an economy that is dominated by subsistence agriculture. Adaptation measures will be focused on reducing the adverse effects of climate change and promote sustainable development. These measures will build on existing strategies and plans across all sectors within Timor-Leste including the National Priorities process while initiating six dynamic Sector Working Groups on food security, water, health, disasters, biodiversity and infrastructure.
