UNDP – Timor-Leste Comprehensive climate hazard mapping and risk assessment and development of risk model for Timor-Leste (UNDP/TLS/PS/2021/016)
The contract’s goal is to conduct a comprehensive climatic hazard and risk mapping in the context of UNDP project funded by the Green Climate Fund (GCF) titled FP109 “Safeguarding rural communities and their physical and economic assets from climate induced disasters in Timor-Leste”. The study produced a
comprehensive country-wide mapping of the major climate hazards and develop clear usable risk profiles
consolidated through a GIS based risk model for TimorLeste. It involved a team of more than 30 people,
including field level surveyors and data loggers. The work included advisory services, field assessments and data analysis, including development of novel methodologies, delivery to government partners of a
complete and tailor-made system in GIS database format, with full operability relating to climate and
geo-hazards, plus vulnerability and risk (economic, social, physical, ecological). It also involved technical training to approx. 300 local stakeholders.
