The Food Security Bulletin is part of the national information and early warning system which provides up to date contextual information on the state of food and nutrition security in Timor-Leste. WFP provides technical support in the analysis through the Inter-Ministerial Council for Food Security, Food Sovereignty and Nutrition (KONSSANTIL).

The Food Security Bulletin 2021 (January to March) shows that rice production estimates have been marred by the devasting floods; and continues to account for only 30 percent of the national requirement; while  policy-wise, market intervention initiatives by National Logistics Centre (NLC) and Government plans to procure rice for strategic reserves likely to cushion the impact of floods and COVID-19 on food security situation.
