[FSM News] Director Yatilman interviewed by Environmental Legal Adviser


May 16, 2013


Mr. Andrew Yatilman, Director of the FSM Office of Environment and Emergency Management (OEEM) had an hour-long interview by his own legal adviser on environment, Dr. Justin Rose.

The OEEM is the FSM President’s principal  advisory entity on environmental issues. The office also acts as FSM’ official representative at international and regional gatherings on the environment. Director Yatilman has been to several meetings representing the FSM Government such as at the United Nations’ meetings on Climate Change.

The interview dedicated a great deal of focus on FSM’s actions in addressing issues of climate change at the global scene. Mr. Yatilman also made some comments on the visible climate change impacts at home and effects on food security and the general life outlook on atoll living.
