Timor-Leste, the only LDC SIDS in Asia, is an emerging post-conflict country facing multiple challenges including environmental degradation exacerbated by the impact of climate change. Building on emerging work in support of traditional ecosystem management for year-round water security, the activity will contribute towards the newly-completed UNESCO Strategic Country document for Timor-Leste as well as the Timor-Leste UNSDCF, in particular targeting SDG 6, 13, 15 and 17.
