VULNERABLE: The face of climate change in the Maldives

Posted in Nature, Photography by Mohamed Abdulla Shafeeg on November 18, 2009

VULNERABLE is a photo exhibition which showcases the face of climate change in the Maldives, organised by Bluepeace, the first environmental organisation formed in the Maldives. The exhibition was launched in 2009 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Bluepeace, and to join the global environmental movement bringing attention to the threats of climate change in the run up to United Nations Conference on Climate Change (COP15). The exhibition documents the vulnerability of the fragile coral islands of the Maldives to climate change, through pictures from talented Maldivian photographers. It depicts a nation under threat, as it tries to safeguard an age-old culture and lifestyle that could be erased with rising seas and climate change.
