Our Work

Home to approximately 330,000 people, Maldives’ rich marine life and biodiversity have fueled strong growth in tourism, boosting the economy; however, climate change poses a significant threat to sustained progress. High population density–Maldives is ranked the 11th most densely populated country in the world–and dependence on climate-sensitive industries such as fisheries and tourism exacerbate the impact of climate change. USAID works to strengthen the resilience of Maldivians to the adverse effects of global climate change in two main areas: coastal resource and water management.
