A 10-meter resolution land surface digital elevation model (DEM) and derived hillshade for the islands of the Federated States of Micronesia from United States Geological Survey (USGS) 1/3 arc-second DEM quadrangles. Data are only available for Chuuk, Kosrae, and Pohnpei.
In 2018, the Federated State of Micronesia through the Department of Environment, Climate Change and Emergency Management (DECEM) with the support of the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Program (SPREP) assisted in the formulation of the Federated States of Micronesia National Environment Management Strategy (NEMS) 2019–2023.
The FSM NEMS was developed based on data and information in the FSM State of Environment report, formed
as a prerequisite of the NEMS.
The KSDP is a four-year, high-level, document that articulates Kosrae government priorities and development sector vision along with specific targets for focusing workforce efforts and allocating resources. The aims of the KSDP include the following:
• Provide government and sector officials and leaders with long-term guidance for decision-making
• Communicate a prioritized plan to sector stakeholders for addressing a wide range of activities
• Provide a means for communicating government and sector priorities to Kosraean residents
This dataset contains 2 documents; 1) FSM SWARS 2010-2015+, and 2) FSM FAP 2020-2030. Both documents identify FSM's highest priorities for forest resource management and outlines activities for implementation as established by the National and State governments, resource management entities and other stakeholders. The plan includes a comprehensive analysis of progress to date and a needs assessment for the period of the plan. It was developed by the FSM and state partners with funding from the US Department of Agriculture Forest Services (USFS) for each respective reporting period.
Slides from the FSM Inform workshop, introducing the Inform project objectives and the software tools being proposed.
User manuals and quick start guides for using the FSM Inform Environment data portal.
This report reviews environmental law in the Federated States of Micronesia, including recommendations for changes to aspects of the law. The focus of this review is upon environmental law at the national level in FSM, although section 5 includes information on Pohnpei State environmental law.
This report presents the findings following research and a three-week field assessment (April 2009) of the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) in response to nation-wide marine inundation by extreme tides (December 2007, September 2008, and December 2008). This study was conducted at the request of the US Department of Agriculture Forest Service and the state and federal government of FSM, and was compiled and published in 2010, by Charles H.
