Abstract
The Maldives Country Climate and Development Report (CCDR) analyses climate change and development challenges and opportunities in the country in an integrated manner. The report focuses on the Maldives achieving six high-level objectives: (1) improving macroeconomic stability and fiscal space to enable climate action, (2) mobilizing climate finance, (3) enhancing the climate resilience of islands and infrastructure, (4) enhancing the climate resilience of ecosystems, (5) enhancing the climate resilience of livelihoods (fishers and tourism), and (6) unlocking the development benefits from green transitions in energy, mobility, and waste sectors. The CCDR contributes original research into key dimensions of climate resilience in the Maldives, including sea-level rise impact modeling on land, infrastructure, and economic activities; ocean heating impact modeling on fishing and coral reef degradation; and survey work to understand climate change adaptation efforts of and associated challenges faced by tourist resorts. The recommendations presented in the CCDR will support the country in facilitating its climate resilience and green transitions, giving due consideration to the macroeconomic vulnerabilities at the time of releasing the report.
