Timor Leste - Third Agriculture Rehabilitation Project (English)

The Third Agriculture Rehabilitation Project aims to strengthen the capacity of the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF), and its key development partners to assist rural communities in increasing their production and income in a sustainable way. The project was designed with an emphasis on sustainability of activities, impact of achievements, and quality of outputs. The first component - Participatory Development and Natural Resources Management, will support MAFF's main assistance program to upland and coastal communities, by promoting improved self-reliance, and natural resources management to strengthen communities' resilience, and make them less vulnerable to external shocks (such as periodic droughts and chronic food insecurity). Component 2 - Irrigation Rehabilitation and Management, will support MAFF's main assistance program to farmers in lowland irrigated areas, targeting about 4,000 rural families in all 13 districts, of which some 20 percent of members of Water User Associations (WUAs) are expected to be women. The third component - Services to Farmers, will help institutionalize three basic MAFF services to farmers: Information, Animal Health, and Agribusiness support. Finally, component 4 - Program Management, will help MAFF in project management, continue to develop key national policies, and, strengthen the Ministry's managerial and technical capacity.
