Waters of Paradise - Adapting to Climate Change in the Maldives

Today, one of the main problems for Maldivians is water. And it is likely to get worse with climate change. While Northern islands face drinking water shortages during the dry season, from April to May, most Southern islands face a different problem: flooding. The United Nations Development Programme with support from the Green Climate Fund is supporting the Government of the Maldives, to ensure that most vulnerable islands have year-round access to potable water and that they can cope with floods on their own.
