Invasive Alien Species Information for FSM and its constituent states Chuuk, Kosrae, Pohnpei and Yap 2015
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 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.
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;

WENO, Chuuk – On June 13-14, 2019, the FSM Department of Environment, Climate Change, and Emergency Management (DECEM) had a two-day training in Chuuk State regarding the Inform & iCLIM Data Portals Projects and the Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) National Implementation Plan (NIP) Project. DECEM representatives visiting Chuuk to conduct the trainings are Mr. Snyther Biza, GIS and Data Officer; Mr. Skiis Dewey, IT Officer, and Ms. Caroline Werthog, POPs NIP Project Coordinator.
