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.

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.

This dataset contains the gap analysis & spatial prioritization reports for the 4 States of the FSM, which includes:
1) Pohnpei State's Protected Area Network,
2) Chuuk State's Protected Area Network,
3) Yap State's Protected Area Network, and
4) Kosrae State's Protected Area Network.
The reports also include spatial prioritization analyses to identify priority areas to expand the existing network to fill representation gaps for each of the states.
