Community-Level Disaster Management in a Post-Conflict State

Comprehensive research on the vulnerable disaster landscape in Timor-Leste, a small post-conflict state which is still establishing its footing after independence in 2002, reveals insights that apply to many other states in the region.

Current and former Give2Asia staff have conducted extensive research on the local implementation of the Disaster Management Plan in Timor-Leste through primary research in Aileu District. The resulting case study is a resource to better understand and improve upon community-based disaster management in Timor-Leste. It draws insights from Give2Asia’s NGO Disaster Preparedness Program working across eight disaster-prone countries in Asia, and offers guidance to those seeking to make a positive impact with their philanthropic choices.
