Indicative Costing of Timor-Leste’s Consolidated National Action Plan for Nutrition and Food Security

Abstract
This costing analysis presents nutrition-specific and nutrition-sensitive cost categories, covering costing estimates for the period 2023-2030 for each of the sectors. The costing is indicative and based on estimates of scaling up nutrition interventions to a targeted increase in coverage by 2030 based on the best information available in the Timor-Leste budget books and the National Health Sector Nutrition Strategic Plan (NHSNSP) 2022-26. In addition to the core scenario, two alternative cost scenarios were also applied: (i) lower unit costs from the literature and lower target coverage relative to the core scenario, and (ii) 15 percent higher unit costs and target coverage, relative to the core scenario. In order to ensure a sustained impact over the long term, many of the above-mentioned nutrition-specific interventions will need to be complemented with investments in nutrition-sensitive sectors. Nutrition-sensitive investments bear an indirect impact on nutrition outcomes by influencing the underlying determinants of nutrition.
