National Capacity Self-Assessment (NCSA) for Global Environmental Management - Federated States of Micronesia

Project Summary

The purpose of the NCSA will be to conduct a thorough assessment and analysis of the capacity needs and constraints facing FSM as it works to meet its global environmental management obligations as set forth in Rio conventions and related international instruments. It will facilitate a cross-sectoral process of consultations, stocktaking, sequencing and prioritization of capacity needs, especially for identifying bottlenecks that impede the country from fully meeting its objectives under the relevant conventions. Specific objectives to be accomplished through the NCSA will include identification of priority issues for action within and across the thematic areas of biodiversity, climate change, and land degradation, catalyzing targeted and coordinated actions and requests for future external funding, and linking country action to protect the global environment with the broader national environmental management and sustainable development framework. It will involve a comprehensive and integrated approach in assessing and analyzing all aspects of environmental management and conservation in terms of future capacity building programs in the country. Lastly, the NCSA would also assist the country in addressing environment-related issues in line with the priorities set forth in the country’s national development plans.
