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.
