A rapid improvement in food production, food security and farm incomes is a pressing national priority and Government of Timor Leste has been directing considerable resources to this objective. However, the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries has previously lacked the capability to work effectively with farmers. Part of the Government’s strategic response to the food security challenge has been to establish a new agricultural extension system with the capacity to provide support and encouragement to farmers in all parts of the country.

This document gives an overview of the development of extension in Timor Leste as well as key policy issues.

This volume is a collection of agricultural sub-sector papers which provide very clear insights into the various land based food production sub-sectors being examined, with the principal aim of achieving a higher national food security. It aims to achieve that through environment sustainability and mainstreaming climate change considerations especially for adaptation measures. It analyses the food production efforts to date, investigates resource utilisation in the land based food production activities and identifies the shortfall.  It proposes new targets for national food production in a concrete plan for the next five years and guides the focus of food production on the principle of exploiting areas in which there are national comparative advantages.
