Timor Leste - Systematic Country Diagnostic : Pathways for a New Economy and Sustainable Livelihoods (English)

This first systematic country diagnostic (SCD) for Timor-Leste identifies key priorities to sustainably achieve the World Bank Group (WBG) twin goals of eradicating extreme poverty and boosting shared prosperity in Timor-Leste. The Timor-Leste SCD presents a key set of priorities towards achieving the twin goals along three pathways: i) continuing to invest in human capital and improved service delivery; ii) sustained economic growth and private sector job creation; and iii) sustainable management of both the natural environment and public finances. The WBG will use the SCD as an input towards the preparation of its Country partnership framework (CPF) for Timor-Leste, which will aim to bring to bear the full resources of the WBG to support key development objectives in Timor-Leste.
