ENVIRONMENTAL EXPERTS VISIT EAST TIMOR

A team consisting of environment experts from Norway is currently in East Timor to study environment problems facing the territory. They are expected to stay for four months and assist three environment experts from East Timor in their work.

The team is traveling around the country, organizing workshops and meetings at village and district levels. The team will subsequently produce a number of project proposals to be presented to donors at a conference in Dili in January. A similar scheme in Laos three years ago generated US$40 million.

The project is funded with approximately US$200,000 by the Norwegian Government through the United Nations Development Program and is supported by UNTAET’s Environment Protection Unit.

In addition, the Environmental Protection Unit is undertaking a survey of illegal dumpsites in and around Dili and Liquiça. The survey will be used as a background for a policy paper that will be passed on to the Cabinet and reviewed with the aim of eventually passing a regulation, prohibiting people to dump garbage in undesignated areas.
