dataset with data pertaining to livestock (piglet) distribution by R&D for outer islands in the fiscal year 2014 - 2015. This data was analyzed in the current SOE
The impacts of climate change and human activity are the main contributing factors to the declining production of food and food security. The Marshallese people have long been cultivating the land for food, medicinal and other traditional purposes. The Ministry of Resources and Development (R&D) has a
programme to restock livestock and food crops for national food security. Over 2,800 types of plants were distributed on most of the outer islands, as well as Majuro.
Warming trends were evident in both annual and half year mean air temperatures since 1955 at Majuro. The frequency of warm days has increased. Data herein are records of the extreme minimum and extreme maximum daily and monthly temperature recorded for RMI from 1955 - 2014 that were further explained in page 47 of the SOE, 2016
An academic study on the geomorphic adjustment of Nadikdik Atoll based on the comparison of aerial photographs taken in 1945 and modern satellite imagery, after the devastating typhoon that over-washed and destroyed the atoll in 1905. This study has significant implications for the geomorphic understanding of reef islands, revealing magnitudes of island change not previously recognized.
This paper presents a case study of traditional and contemporary settlement patterns of Majuro, and discusses its vulnerability to storm surges. The paper shows that the application of traditional knowledge extends to the realm of urban planning and that, in fact, ignoring this traditional knowledge as expressed in preWorld War II settlement patterns, exposes urban development to increased flood hazards, a risk which may exact a price too high in life and property.
A record of total power generation (kWh or MWh) and demand in Marshall Islands from 2009 - 2012. The decrease in energy consumption shows that the community and government initiatives to promote energy efficiency are effective. Data herein are elaborated further on page 114 of the SOE, 2016.
The Forest Inventory and Analysis program collected, analyzed, and summarized field data on 44 forested field plots for the 10 largest atoll groups in the Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI). This dataset is an estimated total of tree species mix based and it includes native forest, agro-forest and coconut plantations.
This legal review has been written to provide an overview of the legal aspects of environmental management issues facing the Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI), steps that have been taken to tackle these issues and the weaknesses and gaps that remain.
For the Ninth Pacific Islands Conference on Nature Conservation and Protected Areas December 2013, Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) commissioned an assessment of the status of biodiversity and conservation in Oceania. This report assesses the overall state of conservation in the Republic of the Marshall Islands using 16 indicators.
