Maldives Creates New Island City Of Hope To Protect Against Rising Sea Levels








Rising sea levels threaten to submerge the Maldives. However, instead of fearing the ocean, innovators have come up with a solution: a brand-new island.
Due to increasing temperatures and melting glaciers across the world, researchers from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change have estimated that sea level rises could top a metre by the end of the century – every centimetre of sea level rise equals around a million people being displaced from their low-lying homelands.
While considered a popular holiday destination, picturesque and sunny, the Maldives’ very existence in the Indian Ocean hangs in the balance of global warming. Back in 2004, 80% of its 1,200 islands were reported to be no more than one metre above sea level.
