Situation Analysis of Children (SitAN) in Timor- Leste
Timor-Leste has changed dramatically. Since its independence of merely a decade ago, it has moved from a post-conflict country to a lower middle income developing country. As the country experienced socio-economic and security-related progress in recent years, the situation of children in Timor-Leste has also gradually improved. Nonetheless, there are several challenges still affecting children in Timor-Leste. A comprehensive situation analysis on children is imperative to ensure evidence-based actions that address the remaining challenges within the changing context of the country.
This Situation Analysis of Children 2014 (SitAn) provides an overview of children’s rights to health and nutrition, water, sanitation and hygiene, education, protection, and participation, with a special focus on disadvantaged children and their families.
The analysis identifies key progress and persisting child deprivations, and explores the immediate and underlying causes of issues relating to supply, demand and quality of services which affect the equitable achievement of children’s rights in Timor-Leste. The basic enabling environment for the improvement of children’s lives is also discussed.
The SitAn aims to increase awareness and understanding of child development issues in the country and supports the implementation of the Fifth Constitutional Government’s Programme (2012-2017) and the National Strategic Development Plan (2011-2030).
