The Asia Foundation Timor Leste Tourism Development political economy annual 2021 update
Laure-Hélène Piron, TPP Director, and Aderito Soares, TPP Associate, have assisted The Asia Foundation Timor-Leste Tourism Team update their political economy analysis in order to adjust their programme to the 2021 circumstances. The Covid-19 restrictions on international travel and low level of vaccinations mean that tourists cannot travel to Timor-Leste. Through a remote and facilitated process, The Policy Practice team have, at the same time, enabled the Tourism team identify the main enablers and barriers, and refocus their strategy. The process also further developed the team’s own capacity to undertake political economy analysis and stakeholders mapping. This project built on the 2020 in-person support that The Policy Practice provided to facilitate a baseline political economy analysis.
