Federated States of Micronesia —Climate Risk Profile

The risks evaluated are extreme rainfall events (both hourly and daily), drought, high sea levels, strong winds, and extreme high air temperatures. Projections of future climate-related risk are based on the output of global climate models, for given emission scenarios and model sensitivity. With the exception of maximum wind speed, projections of all the likelihood components of climate-related risk show marked increases as a result of global warming.
