Federated States of Micronesia

The Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) comprises 607 islands spread across the four states of Yap, Chuuk, Pohnpei and Kosrae. With its small landmass and self-sustaining way of life, the FSM is an insignificant contributor to global greenhouse gas emissions. Despite this, its people are dealing with adverse impacts of climate change like damage to ecosystems, infrastructure and agriculture. To protect the future of its people and islands, the FSM is leading in the decarbonization and sustainable development of its economy. 

NDC Target

The Federated States of Micronesia submitted its Intended Nationally Determined Contribution on 24 November 2015 to the UNFCCC Secretariat. No further revisions were undertaken, and the same document was endorsed and submitted as the First Nationally Determined Contribution on 15 September 2016.

Conditional (35.00%)

Subject to the availability of external additional financing, technical and capacity building support from the international community, the Federated States of Micronesia could reduce by 2025 an additional up to 35% of greenhouse gas emissions compared to a base year of 2000. This is an approximate 94,000tCO2e.

Unconditional (28.00%)

In the absence of receiving any external support, the Federated States of Micronesia commits to unconditionally reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 28% by 2025 compared to a baseline year of 2000. This is an approximate 108,000tCO2e.

The Federated States of Micronesia has an ambitious emission reduction target of 63% reduction by 2025. The achievement of this target of 63% emission reduction by 2025 will be through both unconditional (28%) and conditional (35%) means based on additional external financing being made available to the Federated States of Micronesia.
