Multihazard Risk Atlas of Maldives
This atlas provides spatial information about Maldives and thematic maps necessary for assessing future development investments in terms of climate risks and geophysical hazards. It is also intended to support the formulation of cobeneficial options for climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction and management. The five-volume atlas is a major output of the project “Establishing a National Geospatial Database for Mainstreaming Climate Change Adaptation into Development Activities and Policies in Maldives” under the Asian Development Bank’s regional knowledge and support (capacity development) technical assistance Action on Climate Change in South Asia (2013–2018).
The Multihazard Risk Atlas of Maldives is composed of Geography—Volume I, Climate and Geophysical Hazards—Volume II, Economy and Demographics—Volume III, Biodiversity—Volume IV, and Summary—Volume V.
