INFORMATION BRIEF PROJECT:
Implementing an integrated “Ridge to Reef” approach to enhance ecosystem services, to conserve globally important biodiversity and to sustain local livelihoods in the FSM.
Strengthen local, State and National Capacities and actions to implement an integrated ecosystem management through “R2R” approach on the High Islands of the four states of FSM. R2R APPROACH A cross-cutting approach to water, land and coastal management. Designed to engineer a paradigm shift towards management of natural resources with an ecosystem-based management of “ridge to reef”. Inherent in this R2R approach are principles of multi-sectoral coordination in the planning and evidencebased management that strikes a balance between coastal livelihoods and biodiversity conservation, risk reduction, climate variability and climate change.
