This report documents the diversity of terrestrial plants and animals within the FSM that varies from east to west due to differences in climate (particularly rainfall), geology, topography and geographical isolation.
This dataset hosts FSM's national reports to the Convention on Biological Diversity.
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.
As part of the preparation of the Pacific Region Environmental Strategy (PRES) the Asian Development Bank (ADB) has funded a field study in Yap State. The objectives of the study are to evaluate:
1) how traditional systems have played a role in natural resource management and in development
2) how traditional systems could be productively integrated with contemporary approaches to resource management
3) how public-private partnerships have been employed in the development of tourism destinations in a Pacific island nation and could be employed in future development.
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 conservation plan aims for FSM to have more extensive, diverse and higher quality of marine, terrestrial and freshwater ecosystems, which meet human needs and aspirations fairly, preserve and utilize traditional knowledge and practices, and fulfill the ecosystem functions necessary for all life on Earth
This Feasibility Study was undertaken by the Pacific Invasives Initiative (PII). The study was undertaken to determine the feasibility of managing invasive plant species suspected of threatening an area of lowland native forest on Kosrae island, Federated States of Micronesia. A proposed protection area within the forest has high biodiversity, water supply and cultural values.
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.

This dataset holds the following reports for the FSM Climate Change and Disaster Risk Finance Assessment:
1. FSM Climate Change and Disaster Risk Finance Assessment – Executive Summary – February 2019
2. FSM Climate Change and Disaster Risk Finance Assessment – Final Report – February 2019
This dataset contains the FSM ‘Nationwide Climate Change Policy 2009’, which was endorsed on December 1st, 2009, and the FSM ‘Nation Wide Integrated Disaster Risk Management and Climate Change Policy 2013’, which was endorsed on June 2013. The Integrated 2013 Policy supersedes the 2009 Climate Change Policy.
For the Ninth Pacific Islands Conference on Nature Conservation and Protected Areas December 2013, Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) commissioned an assessment of the status of biodiversity and conservation in Oceania. This report assesses the overall state of conservation in the Federated States of Micronesia using 16 indicators.
*this report wasn't published but was sent to FSM for checking (2013)* - to be used for the Regional SOE initiative 2019
This dataset has the FSM SWARS final report of 2010 – 2015+
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. Fletcher and Bruce M. Richmond.
