    This report is an evaluation of the project “Establishing a sustainable National Information and Early Warning System (NIEWS) on Food Security in Timor-Leste”, through which the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) supported the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries (MAF) to improve the institutional structures and corresponding capacities necessary to sustain NIEWS. The main purpose of the evaluation was to: (i) provide accountability to the donor; and (ii) draw lessons from the implementation processes that could inform future decisions by the European Union (EU) and FAO on the formulation of a second phase or follow-up intervention.

    Agriculture is the most important economic sector in Timor-Leste; however, roughly two-thirds of the country’s population suffers from food insecurity, and poverty and malnutrition are major issues. Food production is low, which leaves many people with shortages for several months a year. A contributing factor to the problems faced by the agriculture sector in Timor-Leste is a lack of accurate data on the structure of agriculture in the country, owing to an unreliable agricultural statistics system. Prior to this project, the only available data came from administrative reports provided by agricultural extension workers, which did not include any benchmarks or standardization. Both the Government of Timor-Leste and the MAF aim to resolve the issue of food insecurity in the country. Achieving this goal is extremely challenging without current, reliable data to measure progress, to formulate and implement comprehensive policies and programmes, and to effectively provide services and resources to stakeholders in the agriculture sector.
