Environment
The largest environmental concerns that Micronesia faces are overfishing, climate change, and pollution.1 As a nation composed of islands, Micronesia faces a unique set of maritime and coastal environmental concerns.2 While data on environmental issues is limited, it has been noted that industrial and agricultural pollution have had detrimental effects on the Micronesian environment.3 In November 2013, the Federal States of Micronesia passed a nationwide climate change bill.4 The law will help to provide accountability and mandates that will force government agencies to enforce climate change legislation.5

Finances

Economic activity consists of subsistence farming and fishing and government which is funded largely by Compact of Free Association (Compact) assistance provided by the US. The islands have few known mineral deposits worth commercial exploration. The potential for tourism is also limited by isolation, lack of adequate facilities, and limited air and water connections hinder development. Under the terms of the original Compact, the US provided $1.3 billion in grants and aid in 1986-2001. The US and the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) negotiated a second (amended) Compact agreement in 2002-2003 that took effect in 2004. The amended Compact runs ...See More for a 20-year period to 2024; during which the US will provide roughly $2.1 billion to the FSM. The amended Compact also includes a Trust Fund for the people of the FSM which is to provide an income stream beyond 2024 when Compact grants are to end. The country's medium-term economic outlook appears fragile because of reduced US assistance and lackluster performance of its small and stagnant private sector. Show Less ;
