The Federated States of Micronesia Agriculture Policy Bank

fsm flag

In FSM, the agriculture sector has been identified as one of the priority areas for economic development, however, the sector has not been productive and growth has been sluggish and stagnant over the last 20 years.

The agriculture sector provides food, livelihoods and employment for a significant proportion of the population.

Local production needs to remain the core of the food system and the capacity of FSM farmers to trade their produce locally, regionally and internationally needs to be supported and extended.

  • KEY POLICIES

    This Agriculture Policy, which is the conclusion of a participatory consultative process among a wide range of stakeholders across the four states, provides the basis for action by both public and private sectors to invigorate sustainable agriculture growth in the Federated States of Micronesia. It recognizes the major role played by traditional farming systems and the impact of socio-cultural realities.

    Work on the Strategic Development Plan (SDP) started late in 2003, as the FSM entered a new phase of its development with the implementation of the amended Compact. While the new fiscal procedures required the FSM to transmit a Strategic Development Plan to the U.S. to provide the framework on which to base the annual requests for the Compact sector grants, the FSM more importantly required a process to identify its development strategy for the new era.

    In 1995 and 1996 the FSM and four states underwent the first round of Economic Summits and participatory planning process. The Summit process was initiated to achieve broad-based understanding and consensus for reform measures needed to adjust to the changing economic circumstances facing the FSM. Most importantly the FSM was preparing for the large declines in Compact funding resulting from the second step-down. The nation was also beginning to consider the implications of the Compact economic assistance negotiations that were looming on the horizon.
