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.
