Abstract:
Over the past five years, more than nine socioeconomic assessments have been conducted in Micronesia following Socioeconomic Monitoring Guidelines for Coastal Managers in Pacific Island Countries (SEM-Pasifika). Resource managers and community members in Palau, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, the Marshall Islands, and the Federated States of Micronesia have used this tool to guide local teams through the steps of developing, conducting, analyzing, and communicating an assessment. Results have been used to collect baseline data and inform management on a variety of issues related to resource management. In an effort to bring all of these different assessments together in one document, this report provides a bibliography of the SEM-Pasifika assessments that have been conducted in the region. For each study, I identify the title, author, supporters, assessment objectives and methods used. This is a living document that will be added to as assessments continue to be conducted throughout the region. It is my intention that this information will be useful to people working on regional socioeconomic efforts in Micronesia"--Page 3.
