Securing food resources in the Federated States of Micronesia


Food security is at the core of sustainable development in the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM). Without access to safe and nutritious food, development goals such as eliminating disease, reducing infant mortality and improving education are profoundly difficult.

This 4 page case study is intended for decision-makers across the Pacific with an interest in community-based resource management and securing food resources against the impacts of climate change.

The Australian Government's Pacific Adaptation Strategy Assistance Program (PASAP) assisted 15 partner countries to assess their vulnerability to climate change and incorporate adaptive measures into planning and development.
