About Maldives

Maldives is an archipelago of 1,200 coral islands grouped in 26 atolls in the Indian Ocean. With its highest point only eight feet above sea level, it is one of the world’s most vulnerable countries to global climate change. Located along major international shipping routes, a peaceful and resilient Maldives is critical to maritime security and regional stability.

USAID programs address climate-related impacts such as rising sea levels, increasing shortages of potable water and droughts.
