Introduction: 

Introduction

Geography: 

Geography A chain of coral atolls 860 km long, 80 -120 km wide 26 geographical atolls Atolls are made up of non-contiguous reefs in a ring formations with faros and islands scattered within the atoll - land is not contiguous Over 5,000 separate reefs 1,192 islands 199 inhabited islands, 86 resorts, 5 airports

Geography - islands: 

Geography - islands average height above mean sea level is 1.5 m over 80% of land area less than 1m above mean sea level size: from 0.5 to 2 sq.km 3 islands greater than 3 sq.km total land area: approximately 300 sq.km (less than 1% of the EEZ)

Major outcomes of the Enabling Activity: 

Major outcomes of the Enabling Activity Quantification of Maldives contribution to global GHG emissions Better understanding of Maldives vulnerabilities to climate change Possible adaptation measures identified National Adaptation Programmes of Action (NAPA) to address climate change Quantification of Maldives contribution to global GHG emissions

Maldives contribution to global GHG emissions: 

Maldives contribution to global GHG emissions Maldives emits 20 times less CO2 per capita compared with the OECD average The CO2 emissions of the Maldives is very minute in terms of total emissions as well as per capita emissions
