The Program

The Partnership for Human Development (PHD) represents Australia’s long-term vision for enhancing human development in Timor Leste. It brings together the Australian Embassy’s (Timor Leste) diverse activities in health, education, water, sanitation, nutrition, gender equality, disability and social protection into a single program to maximise effectiveness, relevance and performance. This investment in Timor-Leste will work towards Strategic Objective 2 of Australia’s Timor-Leste Aid Investment Plan: enhancing human development. Improved human development will ensure that coming generations of Timorese people are better able to lead, contribute to and benefit from their nation’s economic and social development.

The Program is collaborating with the Timorese government, local authorities, and civil society partners to work with communities, to achieve two categories of sanitation improvement as specified in the Timor-Leste National Basic Sanitation Policy:

·         ‘Open Defecation Free’ (ODF) status: excreta-free open spaces, drains, water bodies and institutional buildings.

·         Hygienic status: 100% coverage of hygienic toilets and handwashing stations with soap; universal safe disposal of infant and child faeces

The Hygienic Initiative will target the improvement of houses in order to create communities free from pathogens and thus healthier to live in. One form of support provided to facilitate communities in achieving hygienic status, is a voucher targeted at vulnerable houses that they can redeem at local stores / kiosks for products that can be used to improve household sanitation.

JOB ADVERTISEMENT – CONSULTANCY 

Social Audit Methodology Expertto Produce Social Audit Handbook for Timor-Leste

 

BACKGROUND

In late 2016, NGO Forum Timor-Leste (FONGTIL) and The Asia Foundation began implementing a program, funded by the European Union, to support local non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to implement social audits and use the results to advocate to government for more effective and appropriately resourced public services for communities across the country.

 

The program directly supports the ongoing efforts of Prime Minister Rui Maria de Araújo, who introduced the social audit initiative at the swearing in of the new government in early 2015. The Prime Minister identified the priority sectors of agriculture, education, health, and basic infrastructure, and the government and civil society subsequently forged a partnership for social auditing marked by a Memorandum of Understanding between FONGTIL and the Prime Minister. The social audits will support citizens to evaluate public sector policy and implementation against the government’s stated objectives and commitments, using concrete evidence that has been collected in a participatory and inclusive manner.

 

This program will result in the development and refinement of rigorous tools and guidelines for data collection and citizen engagement, financial and technical support to NGOs to implement social audit projects nation-wide, and support to ensure that the findings are followed up and taken into account in policy-making, collaborating closely with the Social Audit Unit in the Office of the Prime Minister (SAU OPM).
