About the program

The GfD Program is an Australian aid initiative supporting governance reforms that impact the reach and quality of services, and economic opportunity in Timor-Leste. Governance reforms do not occur quickly and need substantial support to build lasting impacts. In light of this, GfD is an eight-year program, with the current phase running from July 2017 to June 2021.

GfD supports improvements of state institutional performance, but is not prescriptive about the route to reform as long as it is “politically possible and technically appropriate”. As such, GfD’s implementation approach is prospective in the sense that GfD remains alive to emerging opportunities for engagement and reform. GfD is a flexible program that aims to engage with the policy process by working with influential stakeholders to support reforms identified by GoTL.

At the same time, GfD supports institutional reforms to build the credibility of government institutions, and therefore their effectiveness and influence over time. GfD complements other Australian aid programs in Timor-Leste, in the areas of: agriculture, economic development, community development, health, education, infrastructure, nutrition and eliminating violence against women.
