Seeds of Life, an Australian-funded program in East Timor, is working to help poor farmers grow crops that are better-suited to East Timor's climate.

Australia is a leading advocate and supporter of international mine action, working with partner governments in 17 countries, including the most contaminated in the Asia Pacific region, as well as the Middle East and Africa.
