The Project, titled “Securing Climate-Resilient Sustainable Land Management and Progress Towards Land Degradation Neutrality in the Federated States of Micronesia”, is a six-year (2024-2029) project funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) through the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and executed by the Department of Environment, Climate Change and Emergency Management (DECEM), Federated States of Micronesia. The proposed project aims to secure critical ecosystem services in the Federal States of Micronesia’s (FSM) through climate-resilient sustainable land and coastal management contributing to Land Degradation Neutrality (LDN).

The long-term goal is to support achievement of all five objectives of LDN which are to: maintain or improve the sustainable delivery of ecosystem services; maintain or improve productivity in order to enhance food security; increase resilience of the land and populations dependent on the land; seek synergies with other social, economic and environmental objectives; and reinforce responsible and inclusive governance of land. The objective will be achieved through the following components:
Component 1. Strengthening the strategic (institutional, policy, regulatory) framework for addressing land          degradation
Component 2. Enhancing information, decision support tools and capacity for addressing land degradation
Component 3. Embedding climate-smart sustainable land management in critical landscapes and coastal zones (demonstration activities)
Component 4. Effective knowledge management, gender mainstreaming, and M&E
