Development Partners Meetings

The Timor-Leste and Development Partners Meeting (TLDPM) is an annual conference attended by various development stakeholders in Timor-Leste, including Government, members of  Parliament, Development Partners, Private Sector Representative, and Civil Society Organizations.


The meetings are an opportunity to:

  • reflect on previous development successes and challenges, and
  • consider ways to strengthen and align future development initiatives in Timor-Leste.
  • Discuss pressing issues that have arisen in the development landscape.

TLDPM draws strongly upon the belief enshrined in the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness that the building of more effective and inclusive partnerships between Government and development partners will have a greater impact on reducing poverty and, therefore, ensure a more positive future for the people of Timor-Leste.

Since December 2002, TLDPM has sought to highlight the significance of forging development partnerships among bilateral and multilateral donors and other key development stakeholders, including civil society, operating in this country.

At the meeting

The TLDPM provides the Government and development partners with the opportunity to jointly review progress in meeting national development goals and objectives. This helps donors to align their development assistance and increase their aid predictability to Timor-Leste.

In the spirit of transparency, the Government of Timor-Leste wishes to make available as much documentation regarding this meeting as possible.

Quarterly Development Partners Meeting

As part of the National Priorities Process, the Government of Timor-Leste arranges Quarterly Development Partners Meetings (QDPMs) to provide a forum for the Government and development partners to maintain an open channel for communication and to keep both sides up to date on developments that could affect the nation’s development.
