Changing regional demography in the Federated States of Micronesia: contrasting planning challenges in an emerging Pacific nation



Changing regional demography in the Federated States of Micronesia: contrasting planning challenges in an emerging Pacific nation



Environment and Planning. C Government and Policy 11(2): 123-141



"Island nations consisting of small landmasses separated by large expanses of ocean face particularly severe challenges in their quest for economic and social development. In this paper, planning concerns in one such nation, the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM), are examined. The study opens with a description of each of the four separate states in the FSM.... Regional aspects of FSM development are then examined by a statistical analysis of the geographical distribution of population in the individual states.... The study concludes with an assessment of the regional challenge of developing the FSM into an economically and culturally sustainable nation."
