In Micronesia...What's Possible?

152 ratings | 24800 views
We hit the streets of Yap, part of the Federated States of Micronesia, to ask Micronesians for their ideas on what’s possible for the island nation’s future. This video is part of a World Bank report series, #PacificPossible, focusing on the challenges and opportunities for the Pacific Islands region in coming decades. Join the discussion in the comments below, at www.worldbank.org/pacificpossible, or with the #PacificPossible hashtag on social media. #Pacific #development #EastAsiaPacific #PacificIslands

Manky teeth betel nuts and obesity are problems in these islands

Komodo Dragon Biological and social factors plays major key role in these 'problems.' Pacific Islanders in general are fat due to their body's inability to burn fats having being introduced Western high fat food in recent decades. Betel nut chewing may be hard to eradicate due to its cultural significance.

Atarasingko Lelasip we love Micronesia and her people. We want you to be part of us. We are in the same race. Of course, being a federal state, you will have your own laws, own flag, own identity, own language, own culture, etc.

Newwie Lonzaga keyword: *was* . Meaning *no longer is* . And also we shouldn’t have to be a part of you guys. You guys didn’t like when the US tried to annex you guys, what makes you think we gonna let you do the same with us? Thanks, but no thanks.

FSM was part of the Spanish East Indies. It should belong to the Philippines and become a federal state!

Micronesia so small and it good only for tourist or the retirees.not enough for dwelling and child bearing.very soon,will be overpopulated,and what will happen?Now,is the time to move on,if your age is old enough to move on,it is time to move.don't wait until things getting worse,and you looked around you,and you don't know what to say.Good Luck Micronesia.

Nice video. Technology and culture can exist side-by-side in my opinion. And I think many western ideals get rejected just because they are western. The west didn't invent those ideals, they just stumbled across some that were good.
