N. Marianas Islands Report
Summary of 2015 State/Protectorate PDP Activities and Results:
SARE activities in the Northern Marianas Islands were limited during 2015. First the typhoon in August resulted in extreme physical damage to the CREES offices and research centers. The NMC-CREES office was completely destroyed with both electronic and hard copies of all information. Only limited financial data was not destroyed since it was housed on a different server in another location. The remaining of the year was spent trying to restore the properties order and with the incoming of a new coordinator time was spent determining how to move forward in 2016.
Context and Overview:
Since the island coordinator was changed during 2015 there were no activities. An evaluation is in progress on how to align activities with island needs.
Activities and Methods:
No activities were undertaken.
PDP-funded Publications/Educational Materials and Products:

Changes in Ag Professionals’ Knowledge, Intention and Action:
There were no known impacts given there were no activities.
Since there were no activities and no evaluations conducted there were no unintended outcomes.
