On August 16, the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) signed a grant agreement with the Government of the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste in Dili, to provide grant aid of up to 1 billion yen for The Programme for Urgent Rehabilitation of Flood-damaged Infrastructures.
Under this programme, public services in the capital city and agricultural production infrastructure in rural areas will be restored through the rehabilitation of basic infrastructure and agricultural facilities that were damaged by devastating floods and landslides, which occurred in these areas in April 2021.
