Remarks by UNDP Resident Representative, Tony Lisle Building Partnerships for Climate Change Adaptation ForumJun 27, 2013In increasing the resilience of the Maldivian tourism industry, each one of us has a role to play. Government agencies, NGOs, associations and the private sector, we all have to work together and share information so that we become better partners in our efforts to make the Maldivian tourism industry resilient to the effects of climate change. It is a challenging task before us, but I believe, with strong partnerships, we can make small but important incremental steps towards achieving a Maldives that is more resilient to climate change.
