These reports include data provided by individual Development Partners representatives. Only those projects that provide development, humanitarian and emergency assistance are entered into the database: military and security-related assistance to Timor-Leste are not included in this report.
Timor-Leste and many of our Development Partners are signatories of the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness in 2005 and following Accra Agenda for Action (AAA) in 2008. These two pacts stressed ‘Mutual Accountability’, i.e. donors and partners are accountable for development results. The Government of Timor-Leste, for the first time, collated annual actual disbursement of Development Partners projects implemented in 2008 and has continued to do so. It is expected that these reports help both the Government of Timor-Leste and Development Partners to gain a comprehensive overview of the flow of development assistance to the country as well as assisting in policy decision making. The Government of Timor-Leste is grateful for the cooperation of our Development Partners in providing project data and the production of the report would not have been possible without their continued support.
