The “Building Shoreline Resilience of Timor-Leste to Protect Local Communities and their Livelihoods” (also referred to as the Coastal Resilience Building) Project is being implemented in close collaboration with the Government of Timor-Leste (GoTL) through the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries as well as working with other line ministries, local and international partners, NGOs and private enterprise as the issues of coastal areas are complex and cross-sectoral. It employs an integrated approach, while tailoring activities to address the specific needs, challenges and priorities of the Government of Timor-Leste.
The objective of the UNDP GEF-funded project – Building shoreline resilience of Timor-Leste to protect local communities and their livelihoods is to strengthen resilience of coastal communities by the introduction of nature-based approaches to coastal protection; as well as support inter- and intra-ministerial coordination for collaborative development planning ensuring protection of coastal areas, as well as identify and research potential revenue streams for long term sustainability.
As mangroves are vital natural defense to the impacts of climate change, extensive mangrove protection and restoration will be supported while addressing community pressures (i.e. felling for fuelwood) and introduce alternative mangrove-supportive livelihoods, as well as improve public awareness about the important role of coastal ecosystems in shoreline protection and climate change adaptation and mitigation.
This Coastal Resilience Building project will systematically strengthen the synergistic relationship between coastal communities and mangroves ecosystems and ensure that coastal communities in Timor-Leste have economic incentives to maintain and safeguard these protective natural systems, without compromising their livelihood options.
The project has been implementing activities since August 2016, with mangrove conservation and restoration and support to livelihood diversification in seven municipalities (Dili, Liquic¸a, Covalima, Bobonaro, Manuhafi, Manatuto and Viqueque) across coastal communities in Timor-Leste.
