CASE STUDY: Adaptation policies in the Maldives
International projections indicate that 85 per cent of the Maldives could be below sea level by 2100.
The country is among small island states that contribute the least to greenhouse gas emissions, yet are among the most vulnerable to climate change impacts.
The Maldives was the first country to declare its intention to be carbon neutral by 2019 and to view climate change as a critical national development challenge.
Key policy actions:
• Climate-proof ten safer islands to be used as future refuge.
• Integrating climate risk into resilient island planning, which includes coastal afforestation, replenishing natural ridges, climate proofing drainage, coral reef propagation, mangrove planting and beach nourishment.
• Local communities are involved in the planning and decision making processes to improve island resilience.
