Results of ADB-supported Operations: Timor-Leste

Timor-Leste became a member of ADB in 2002, the year in which it formally became an independent state. ADB assistance to Timor-Leste over 1999–2005 concentrated on emergency infrastructure.

Recently, Timor-Leste has initiated a new development phase, funded by offshore petroleum revenue. The country aims to achieve a high rate of sustainable economic growth through the conversion of its petroleum wealth into human and physical capital. In 2011–2015, ADB will help the government achieve this fast tracking of development by supporting the upgrading of the country’s infrastructure and other complementary initiatives.

Development Outputs from ADB-Supported Projects in Timor-Leste, 2010-2013

Transport

Use of roads built or upgraded between 2010-2013: 26,670 average daily vehicle-kilometers in the first full year of operation

Traffic benefiting from built or upgraded roads in the year after project completion. Vehicles are buses, trucks, minivans, cars, motorcycles, and other motorized means of conveyance, depending on the country and location. Daily vehicle-kilometers is to be calculated by adding all distances in kilometers traveled by all types of vehicles in a day on roads built or upgraded.

* Ratings are based on project completion reports (PCRs) issued in 2010-2013. These ratings are updated when project completion report validation and/or project/program performance evaluation reports become available. As the PCR for each project is usually prepared 12-24 months after project completion, the figures may include information from projects completed earlier than 2010.

Roads built or upgraded between 2010-2013: 138 kilometers

Length of expressways and national highways (i.e., fully access-controlled roadways) and provincial, district, and rural road networks (i.e., roads without full access control) built or upgraded, expressed in kilometers.

The table includes projects completed during the period, and funded by ADB's ordinary capital resources and/or the Asian Development Fund, cofinanciers, and the government. The outputs presented are limited to ADB's core sectors, as defined under Strategy 2020 and tracked through indicators in the ADB Results Framework. ADB monitors progress on these outputs in the annual Development Effectiveness Review. The numbers represent the sum of outputs and beneficiaries of individual projects. Therefore, the beneficiary numbers reported under education—teachers trained, and students benefitting from school improvement programs or direct support—include those who benefited from more than one project.
