Sustainable Tourism Sector Development and Institutional Strengthening Project
VOLUME 1 – MAIN REPORT |

Timor-Leste has few natural resources – mainly oil, gas and fish. Although development of oil and gas resources provide needed revenue to fund the national budget, it will not generate employment and livelihood opportunities for rural communities, which suffer from low agricultural productivity and food shortages, due to steep, rocky topography and dry climate. The tourism sector in Timor- Leste has the potential to bring socio-economic development to rural areas providing employment and income to rural communities along popular tourist routes and in areas where there are clusters of tourism attractions.

Coastal & Marine Ecotourism Values, Issues & Opportunities on the North Coast of Timor Leste
Final Report |

Well-managed coral reefs have the potential to provide significant economic benefits for Timor Leste. Within South East Asia (SEA), the potential value of coral reef fisheries is 38.5% of the global total of US$5.7 billion, while the potential value of tourism is 50% of the global total of US$9.6 billion. This reflects the continued high dependence of countries within the SEA region on coral reefs for food security and increasing tourism related revenue.

Marine Megafauna Surveys in Timor Leste

2009, Report
Marine Megafauna Surveys in Timor Leste
Identifying Opportunities for Potential Ecotourism | Final Report

The aim of this study was to determine if cetaceans and other megafauna aggregated in the nearshore waters of Timor Leste, and if so, to assess opportunities for regional ecotourism industries based on this resource. The project included (i) monthly aerial surveys (ii) field ground-truthing using boats and (iii) training of TL government staff in aerial survey techniques (manual prepared) and GIS analysis of data.
A light plane was used for aerial surveys of megafauna within two nautical miles of the coastline on a monthly basis from April to November 2008. During four days in November megafauna were also surveyed using a boat along the Dili region of the coast.
