The rising sea threatens the Indian Ocean island state. The government is trying to stem the tide.
Island nations have been disproportionately hit by climate change. Rising sea levels increasingly threaten to submerge entire islands and climate change has led to severe tropical storms, floods and polluted ground water. The problems are especially acute in the group of islands that make up the Maldives in the Indian Ocean. The government is trying to cope with the situation and stem the tide.
