Consultation meeting with Yap State legislators in their meeting chamber on September 11, 2017

Palikir, Pohnpei – As part of an assessment of coastal fisheries in the FSM, NORMA-contracted experts are holding consultations with governments, NGOs, and communities across the nation with the assistance of FSM Department of Resources & Development and support from government and NGO partners in the four FSM States.  The assessment is part of FSM’s World Bank-funded Pacific Regional Oceanscape Program (PROP) Project with the goal of delivering a full report mid-2018 that will outline the status of coastal fisheries in the nation along with gaps that could be addressed.
