Since the Maldives has always been identified as one main country to experience the negative impacts of environmental degradation and sea-level rise, climate change is a topic warmly felt by this country for so long.
Climate Change is mainly due to the increased levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide that comes as a result of the excessive use of fossil fuels, and the Maldives is at the frontline of the climate change battle.
Climate change in the Maldives
Although the Maldives has only a small population, the tourists it attracts each year is massive. So the pollutants that get added to the environments, especially the seas are also massive, which makes the Maldives highly affected by the climate change challenges.
The real threat
Leaving the human activities that damage the ecosystems aside, the Maldives is geographically vulnerable to climate change consequences too. Even if you are staying at the best island resort in Maldives, that too will be just 6 feet above sea level, thereby telling you how vulnerable it is.
The measures that can be taken
Properties the likes of Adaaran Maldives which are prominent players in the tourism sector in the country have already taken measures in solid waste management, and this is really a good sign. Measures have also been taken by the authorities to monitor and manage key natural assets in the country.
