Draft Biodiversity Status Maps for Your 6NR – Micronesia

At the beginning of the 6NR process, we challenged Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity to double the number of maps used from your 5NR to your 6NR. Are you on track to meet this challenge? We have exciting news for you!  Using the UN Biodiversity Lab, and the global datasets available within it, we created 18 draft biodiversity status maps for your country.

Equator Initiative Case Study - Conservation Society of Pohnpei

Since 1998, the Conservation Society of Pohnpei has worked to improve the ecological and social sustainability of a network of seven marine protected areas around the island of Pohnpei in the Federated States of Micronesia. Through environmental education and biological monitoring programmes, the initiative has coordinated marine conservation efforts across Pohnpei, while encouraging a diverse suite of alternative livelihood activities for local communities to reduce human pressures on scarce marine resources.
