Timor-Leste - Ministério da Solidariedade Social (Ministry of Social Solidarity)

National Strategy for Social Protection 2021-2030 - Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste

The National Strategy for Social Protection 2021-2030 materializes the Five-Year Program 2018-2023 of the VIII Constitutional Government through interventions that contribute to reduce poverty and vulnerability, ensuring that the results of economic growth benefit all citizens and contribute to inclusive and sustainable social development.

The Strategy builds on the targets set out in Timor-Leste Strategic Development Plan 2011-2030 and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals which propose to “Implement nationally appropriate social protection systems and measures for all, including floors, and by 2030 achieve substantial coverage of the poor and the vulnerable”. The Strategy is also part of the Strategic Plan of the Ministry of Social Solidarity and Inclusion recently approved for the incoming five years, from 2021 to 2025.
