Greater Malé, Maldives

Back to All Cities

Malé, capital of the island nation of the Maldives, is at the forefront of national action towards a low emission development future which yields co-benefits for air quality, particularly in the priority areas of transport, energy supply and solid waste management.

As a nation of widely-dispersed islands, our geography presents a number of particular challenges in areas with direct impacts on both climate change and air pollution— energy supply, solid waste management, and transport. Economies of scale and sheer upfront investment costs are stacked against us. But, we remain undeterred, and are working towards the twin goals of better air quality and climate change mitigation, both of which protect our population’s health and environment, with investments both from our national budget as well as through international assistance."

Mr. Abdullahi Majeed, Minister of State for Environment and Energy
