Timor-Leste post disaster needs assessment: Tropical Cyclone Seroja and Easter Flood April 2021
This document provides an assessment of the floods and landslides damage caused by the 2021 Cyclone Seroja and needs of the affected people in Timor-Leste to inform the country's long term post-floods recovery efforts across multiple sectors. Recovery needs across social, productive, infrastructure and crosscutting sectors are assessed based on damage and loss as well as the key principles of ‘build back better’ and enhanced disaster resilience.
Total recovery needs are estimated to be approximately US$ 530 million. The most recovery needs are for infrastructure (49%) and social (29%) sectors. Transport (infrastructure) and housing (social) need the most financial resources. The recovery strategy for Timor-Leste must address and prioritize the needs of affected people to enable inclusive recovery and equitable development.
