Timor-Leste Flash Appeal 2006

12 June 2006

1.1 Summary of the Crisis

On 8 February 2006, approximately 300 members of the Timor-Leste armed forces (F-FDTL) demonstrated in front of the Office of the President, demanding a response to their petition of 15 January concerning alleged discrimination in promotion policies and ill-treatment, in particular of the members from the western areas of the country.  In mid-March, the situation culminated in the mass dismissal of 594 soldiers, representing almost 40% of the armed forces.

Consolidated Appeal for Timor-Leste 2007

Timor-Leste Transitional Strategy and Appeal 2008

18 April 2008

Since the last 2007 Consolidated Appeal and following successful Presidential and Parliamentary elections in April and June 2007, Timor-Leste has continued its transition from relief to development.  It is recognised that there is no short-term solution to internal displacement: a phased and multi-dimensional approach is required to reach a sustainable resolution.  The TSA does not substitute for but rather complements Governmental humanitarian and recovery interventions.
