ImageGlobal climate change impacts are widespread, the Middle East region (TTS) is no exception. In the last two years in the region feared crop failures up to incredible food crisis.

For the past two years peoples of the South Central Timor, Indonesia, have been experiencing impacts of global climate change. Failure of food crops yield has led to food crisis. Children of South Central Timor are suffer most. The crisis is exacerbated by the exploitative oriented national economic development policy that puts first the extractive industry even in the archiplagic regions like East Nusa Tenggara. The government piroritizes extraction of mineral, fossil energy as well as forest, puts peoples security and resilency of the ecological functions at risk.Image
