Summary

This profile showcases different dimensions of performance and the distribution of development finance in Timor-Leste. The information below was compiled from two sources: AidData's 2014 Reform Efforts Survey and 2004-2013 Core Database. The 2014 Reform Efforts Survey asked public, private, and civil society leaders in 126 low- and middle-income countries questions about the most pressing problems they face, their top policy priorities, and how aid agencies can partner with them most effectively. Respondents working in Timor-Leste evaluated the degree to which Timor-Leste's development partners influenced the policy agenda (n=39), provided useful advice (n=21), and how helpful the development partners were in implementation (n=15). The 2004-2013 Core Database represents the most comprehensive dataset tracking international development finance.
