The National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan of Timor-Leste (2011-2020)
|

This National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan (NBSAP) is Timor-Leste’s guiding
framework to conserve its biodiversity and serves as safeguard in achieving the
country’s development agenda in the next two decades.
The NBSAP is closely anchored on the National Strategic Development Plan (SDP)
of Timor-Leste (2011-2030). It is consistent with the country’s other sectoral policy
frameworks such as the National Adaptation Programme of Action on Climate Change
(December 2010), the National Action Programme to Combat Land Degradation
(February 2009), the Fisheries Sector Plan and the Forestry Sector Plan.
The NBSAP is also a guiding policy framework for district and sub-district
authorities, civil society and the private sector in their approaches to biodiversity
conservation and ecosystems management. The success of implementing the Strategy
involves close coordination among the key directorates of government concerned in
biodiversity conservation and natural resources management, relevant economic sectors
of the government, and with the private sector. It also involves updating of current
programmers and setting priorities for programming and funding.

TL Cetacean Watching Guidelines

The presence and diversity of cetaceans in our waters has led to the development of whale watching, both on a commercial and small-scale basis. Whale watching is defined as viewing activities in the natural environment, of any cetacean species from land, sea or air. If managed well, this activity can provide a sustainable income from whales, which can reduce damaging activities, such as the harvesting of pilot whales being carried out in Indonesia, close to Timor-Leste. Whale watching has the potential to generate many benefits to communities, contributing to sustainable development.

IMPORTANT BIRD AREAS IN TIMOR-LESTE
Key sites for conservation |

Timor and its associated islands are located within the biologically distinctive region of Wallacea and support a rich diversity of animals and plants, including many species that are found nowhere else in the world. BirdLife International has defined these islands as the “Timor and Wetar Endemic Bird Area” (EBA), because they support 35 bird species with restricted ranges including 23 that are entirely confined to the EBA.
