Weathering change in Timor-Leste: participatory action research in Timor-Leste identifying climate change and associated impacts experienced at the community level
This documents presents the key findings of the Community Based Climate Change Adaptation Programme in Timor-Leste funded by AusAid. The overall aim of the program was to increase the resilience of vulnerable communities, civil society and governments in Timor-Leste to the unavoidable impacts of climate change. The aim of the program was achieved through three key objectives: (i) increased information, awareness and understanding of climate change and its local impacts; (ii) community-based adaptation actions undertaken in up to 100 rural communities, leading to improved livelihoods, food security and environmental outcomes; and (iii) increased dialogue and learning on climate change impacts and priority adaptation measures in Timor-Leste, leading to improved policy and practice.
