In the intervening decades, CRS has responded to large-scale emergencies like the 2004 Tsunami in Indonesia, the 1999 war for independence in Timor Leste, and the 2013 Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. CRS’s humanitarian work in the sub-region has been balanced by a long-running commitment to economic and human development, including a current portfolio of livelihoods, Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR), Savings and Internal Lending Communities (SILC) and peacebuilding and non-violent conflict resolution. CRS’s long, dynamic history in the sub-Region is complemented by the novelty and vibrancy of one of the Agency’s newest offices in the world in Micronesia, opened in early 2017.
