Violence against women within intimate relationships is a serious problem in Timor-Leste. Timorese human rights organizations have stated on a number of occasions that the payment of bride-price (barlake), leads to women being treated as property, and encourages domestic violence.This study investigates whether there is a causal link between barlake and domestic violence and examines if there is a difference between women from matrilineal and patrilineal clans in their experiences of domestic violence.

While Timor-Leste is believed to be on the right track in achieving many of the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) , as well as achieving national development targets, the country still
faces enormous development , socio - cultural, and demographic challenges. The magnitude of these challenges creates drivers and vulnerabilities in the context of HIV infection . Two - thirds of the country’s population is below the age of 30, which means that relatively large numbers of people are sexually active and susceptible to risk - taking behavior. Y oung people are not sufficientlyequipped with the knowledge and life skills toreduceHIV risk in an increasingly  challenging environment. Timor- Leste is reported to have high levels of gender - based violence, undermining women’s ability to negotiate safer sex and making them more vulnerable to HIV and AIDS.
In addition, the increasing mobility and migration of the p opulation into and out of the country via tourism, overseas studies, and employment increases people’s vulnerability. HIV affects people at every level , yet stigma , misunderstanding and misconceptions still exist.

Climate—the average of weather over time—is always changing, but never in known human experience more dramatically than it is likely to change in the coming century.
For millennia, since civilizations arose from ancient farming societies, the earth’s climate as a whole was relatively stable, with temperatures and patterns of rainfall that have supported human life and its expansion around the globe.
