nikolajwilliamcw Arrived in the New year with a splash.
nikolajwilliamcw Had an inspiring and sobering visit on the island of maabaidhoo here in the Maldives. They are together with local UNDP doing amazing work to restore the unique ‘Koaru’ wetlands. And are in the process of transforming their waste management. And restoring the fragile ecosystem. But they need help. Because of climate change severe flooding and erosion is digging away at the island and without action this resilient beautiful culture is threatened. Met Maria who with her husband bougjt a timy piece of land to grow chili and make that extra bit of money to help her finish her education as a teacher. A week before harvest the ocean flooded her crops and she lost everything. We can help. We must help. Clinate change affects us all. We must all share in finding solutions. Thank you so much for the welcome and tour of your island . We will pass on the message. Please support at give.undp.org/nikolaj @undp #climateaction #maldives
