Food security is at the core of sustainable development in the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM).
This document is intended for decision-makers across the Pacific with an interest in community-based resource
management and securing food resources against the impacts of climate change.
A training report (2012) for a training that was intended to provide a platform where local participants can discuss, learn and share good practices about climate change, its effects, adaptations methods and the roles of participants in climate change awareness, education, communication and public access to information.
Considering the concerns of climate change and its impacts on coastal fisheries resources, SPC implemented the ‘Monitoring the Vulnerability and Adaptation of Coastal Fisheries to Climate Change’ project with funding assistance from the Australian Government’s International Climate Change Adaptation Initiative (ICCAI).
This dataset contains the following Action Plans:

4. Kosrae Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan (Kosrae BSAP 2018)
5. Chuuk Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan (Chuuk BSAP 2018)
6. Yap Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan (Yap BSAP 2018)
This dataset holds a country report for FSM on the assessment of the Key Energy Issues, Barriers to the Development of Renewable Energy to Mitigate Climate Change, and Capacity Development Needs for Removing the Barriers under the Pacific Regional Energy Assessment in 2004
This study under the International Waters Project (2004) is aimed at determining both the social and economic context of resource depletion in Yap State, as well as the socioeconomic impact of the implementation of MPAs. The project is focused on four clusters of villages on the main island group, in the districts of Rumung, Maap, Gagil and Gilman
FSM and its constituent states have undertaken to develop a National Invasive Alien Species Strategy and Action Plan (NISSAP) in 2015. This desktop study was implemented to support the development of the NISSAP.
A concise discussion is presented based on a synthesis of the data and information collated highlighting key invasive alien species already occurring in the country or at the verge of potential invasion (considering pathways of introduction), key endemic and threatened species,and threatened ecosystems with description.
This dataset holds three reports on invasive species in Micronesia. . The objectives were three-fold: * To identify species on the islands that are presently causing problems * To identify species that, even though they are not presently a major problem, could spread to other islands where they are not present, potentially causing problems * To look for invasive species known to cause problems in ecosystems similar to the islands visited.
This is a preliminary report by the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) to the Committee on the Review of the Implementation of the Convention (CRIC) for the Convention to Combat Desertification (CCD). This preliminary report is based on the FSM State of the Environment Report, the FSM Nationwide Environmental Management
Strategies (NEMS) (SPREP 1993), the Proceedings of the Second FSM Economic Summit (1999), the proceedings of the Coastal Fisheries Consortium (FSM 2000), the National Planning Framework (2002) and primarily on the National Report to the Biodiversity Convention.
PACC Project implements long -term adaptation measures to increase the resilience of a number of key development sectors in Pacific Island Countries to the impacts of climate change. This pamphlet details information about this project in Kiribati.
Pohnpei and their outer islands are very vulnerable to the introduction of Coconut Rhinoceros Beetle (CRB) because the CRB is present in Guam, Palau, Hawaii and South Pacific. Pohnpei is located near to Guam, Palau and Hawaii and there is regular traffic by air and sea. For this reason this Emergency Response Plan (ERP) is in place not only for control/eradication but also for prevention and spread to other Islands.
Enhancing the biosecurity of Pohnpei’s island ecosystems by putting together efforts to eradicate rats
This paper describes the traditional management system for Pohnpei's forests and presents a case study of the development of a community-based management scheme for the island's remaining forest's resources based on traditional island institutions and practices.
This thesis used a combination of sediment, coral, fish, climatic, and oceanographic data, and focused on the Pohnpei Lagoon, examining a range of natural and human issues in the marine environment both at the local level (focusing on that within the Pohnpei Lagoon) and regional level (focusing on the western Pacific region).
The primary objective of this thesis is to investigate the reliability of water supplies for four atoll islands in Yap, Micronesia and examine how the reliability changes during drought and future precipitation patterns. The islands studied for this thesis include Eauripik (Eauripik Atoll), Falalop (Ulithi Atoll), Ifalik (Ifalik Atoll), and Satawal (a reef island). This study also aims to give water resource managers information and comprehensive tools to improve management of rainwater and groundwater resources.
