A report that outlines the status of endemic plants of Palau resulting from a population inventory of specific species with a focus on taking a close look at a few poorly known species while simultaneously aiming to progress knowledge on a broader scale.
Palau has not produced a definitive list of endangered species although a number of species have been accorded legal protection. All endemics are vulnerable due to their sole residence being a single remote archipelago. This dataset host the available records of red list for Palau as recorded by IUCN.

The Mauritius Strategy for Implementation (MSI) was adopted during the second global conference on the sustainable development of the small island developing states (SIDs). It is broad‐based. Its 20 chapters address a wide range of issues that have unique ramifications in the context of small islands. Cross-cutting issues include planning for sustainability, climate change, sea level rise, energy, transportation, communications, and information. Environmental issues include biodiversity, water and land resources, and waste management.
The Disaster Management Reference Handbook Series is intended to provide decision makers, planners, responders and disaster management practitioners with an overview of the disaster management structure, policies, laws, and plans for Tuvalu covered in the series. Natural and man-made threats most likely to affect the country are discussed. The handbooks also provide basic country background information, including cultural, demographic, geographic, infrastructure and other relevant data
This soil survey contains information that affects land use planning in different survey areas of Palau. It contains predictions of soil behavior for selected land uses. The survey also highlights soil limitations, improvements needed to overcome the limitations, and the impact of selected land uses on the environment. This survey is designed for many different users.
