This is the Vegetation Survey of Yap Main Island from 1986
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.

The Digital Atlas of Micronesia is the foremost source of maps and geospatial information for the Federated States of Micronesia. People searching for any sort of geospatial information can come to this web-based Atlas to identify, visualize, query, analyze, and acquire datasets relevant to their interests. At the core of the Atlas are web-enabled GIS and searchable database that allow users to view and manipulate hundreds of layers of geospatial information.
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.
Under the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) - member countries are implementing the PoWPA. This is FSM's Action Plan for PoWPA and Target 11. Target 11 is a contribution towards ensuring that ecosystems, species and genetic diversity are safeguarded in both the land and seascape by ensuring that key habitats are protected and that species migration and movement can occur. Protected areas are a cornerstone of 5 conservation actions and as such are one of the main tools at a country’s disposal to reduce habitat loss.
This is a continuation of the survey of islands in Micronesia for invasive plant species requested by the Pacific Islands Committee, Council of Western State Foresters in the year 2000. Information herein are valid for reporting and reference.
The objectives, as with the previous survey, were three-fold:
(1) To identify plant species on the islands that are presently causing problems to natural and semi-natural ecosystems;
This new State Solid Waste Management Strategy (SSWMS) is formulated with the aim of enabling Chuuk State to establish a technically sound and financially sustainable solid waste management (SWM) system. To do so, this SSWMS consists of not only of strategic elements, but also a mid‐term action plan of the first five years with technical, institutional and financially appropriate options, which will lead to implementation of the SSWMS .
This new State Solid Waste Management Strategy (SSWMS) is formulated with the aim of enabling Yap State to establish a technically sound and financially sustainable solid waste management (SWM) system. To do so, this SSWMS consists of not only strategic elements but also a mid-term action plan of the first five years with technically, institutionally and financially appropriate options, which will propel realization of the SSWMS.
Using the 3 sea level rise projection scenarios of 2030, 2055 & 2090 in a geospatial modeling analysis, the vegetation and land cover classes vulnerabilities due increase of sea level were assessed and reported, for the 4 states of the FSM. Only the main islands of the 4 states were assessed due to missing DEM of the outer islands. Pohnpei
