  • Description:
    "The Micronesia Challenge represents a locally-driven conservation movement that was originated and perpetuated by the political leaders of Micronesia. The challenge is for jurisdictions to meet effective conservation thresholds across 30% of their marine resources and 20% of their terrestrial resources by 2020. The NOAA cooperative agreement has advanced the Micronesia Challenge by enhancing local coral reef management and monitoring capacity in the Freely Associated States (FAS) of the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM), the Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI) and the Republic of Palau (ROP). The Micronesia Conservation Trust (MCT) and its partners, listed in the box on the right, have achieved activities in the following areas: 1) all FAS coral-reef monitoring teams are fully trained and have standardized and quality-controlled local databases that are in line with MC measures and indicators; 2) provided analytical support for database needs, transmitting data to MC-database, and reporting back to local programs for decision support; 3) assembled a Micronesia Socioeconomic Monitoring Team that is relevant in scope and spatial scale to the regional biological monitoring teams"--Executive Summary.
