The HCT is a coordination forum for humanitarian and early recovery activities in Timor-Leste.


The objective of the HCT is to ensure sound coordination and communication on emergency preparedness, humanitarian and early recovery response in Timor-Leste between the UN, non-government organizations (NGOs), and international organizations. The HCT will work in close collaboration with the Government to facilitate a coordinated and effective approach in support of and to assist people affected by a humanitarian crisis.


This forum replaces the previous Humanitarian Coordination Committee (HCC) as the international policy and advocacy body. 








The Inter-Cluster Coordination Group (ICCG) objective is to ensure sound coordination, information and communication on emergency preparedness, humanitarian and early recovery response in Timor-Leste across all Clusters rolled out in the country. The ICCG also aims at ensuring coherence and transparency when addressing inter-Cluster and cross-cutting issues such as human rights, HIV/AIDS, age, environment and gender mainstreaming, and ensuring increased capacity of Clusters to comply with international guidelines, standards and principles.
