The Maldives - On The Front Line Of Climate Change

MALE, MALDIVES - DECEMBER 16: A man loads yellowfin tuna into his boat to take to a customer, at Male fish market on December 16, 2019 in Male, Maldives. The Maldives is the worlds lowest lying country with a highest natural point of just 2.4 meters above sea level. As well as an increasing population, the nation faces a number of problems caused by climate change including declining fish stocks. Fish has traditionally formed a large part of the Maldives diet but numbers are now coming under increasing pressure because of changes in sea temperatures which are also having an adverse affect on coral life in the region.
