The Government of Maldives along with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) formalizes a project to support vulnerable Maldivian communities to manage climate change-induced water shortages. The project is funded by the Green Climate Fund (GCF) with co-financing from the Government of Maldives and contribution from UNDP.
UNDP partners with people at all levels of society helping build nations that can withstand crisis, to drive and sustain a growth that can improve the quality of life through resilient development. This five-year project targets 49 islands across 13 atolls of the country that continue to experience water shortages linked to low rainfall and extended dry periods brought on by a changing climate.
The project will enable approximately 105,000 people to have uninterrupted and year-round access to safe and secure water in the face of climate change. Read More
