Dili Water Supply Rapid Repair Program – Timor-Leste

On 4 April 2021, Timor-Leste experienced catastrophic flooding from intense rainfall generated by Cyclone Seroja.

The Dili Water Supply Rapid Repair Program (DWSRRP) aims to urgently address the immediate need for clean and continuous water supply, complete rehabilitation works, and conduct long-term resilience planning.
