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