Current and future climate of the Federated States of Micronesia


This brochure summarises the current and expected future climate in the Federated States of Micronesia, based on the latest emissions scenarios and climate models.

It updates the original Current and future climate of the FSM brochure published in 2011 (available in English, Pohnpeian Chuukese and Yapese).

The content of this brochure is the result of a collaborative effort between the FSM National Weather Service Office and the Pacific-Australia Climate Change Science and Adaptation Planning (PACCSAP) Program – a component of the Australian Government’s International Climate Change Adaptation Initiative. The information in this publication, and research conducted by PACCSAP, builds on the findings of the 2013 IPCC Fifth Assessment Report, and uses new emissions scenarios and climate models.

There are 14 country-specific information brochures available for the Pacific region, accessible via the Pacific Climate Change Portal.

More detailed information about the FSM climate can be found in  Climate Variability, Extremes and Change in the Western Tropical Pacific: New Science and Updated Country Reports.
