Climate change poses a severe threat to marine ecosystems, affecting future growth and development in Timor-Leste. Ensuring the nation’s capacity to adapt to climate and ocean change depends upon its capacity to manage and conserve coastal and marine resources. USAID works closely with the government of Timor-Leste, NGOs and communities to support improved fisheries management through baseline data collection of coral reefs and nearshore ecosystems, ocean acidification, and spatial data management framework.
