Strengthening the National Parliament

April 25, 2024

Since its inauguration in 2002, the National Parliament has successfully fulfilled its constitutional mandates – legislative, oversight, and representational functions - which led to the political, economic, and social development in Timor-Leste. Despite the considerable progress, the National Parliament is facing several challenges in terms of its institutional capacity which constrain it to perform its mandates the best. The project focuses on the National Parliament’s further institutional development, particularly in training and capacity building, technical expertise, regulatory impact analysis, digital transformation, citizen engagement, communication, and international relations. The project also ensures that all the support is mainstreaming gender, human rights, environment, and SDGs.
