Recovery and risk reduction through livelihood support in Timor-Leste
Timor-Leste is emerging from decades of conflict that led to its independence from Indonesia in 2002.

The newly established Timor-Leste Red Cross Society has been working with communities to reduce and mitigate the impact of disasters and to aid their recovery, with a focus on livelihoods.
