Many islands will disappear despite COP 21 agreement

Abdullahi Majeed is Minister of State for Environment & Energy of the Maldives and has represented his country at the international climate negotiations since the Rio summit in 1992.

The Maldives – made up of 1200 islands - are currently at the head of the Alliance of Small Island States. The Alliance has 44 members, often very small countries at very low altitudes that are threatened by rising sea levels. Majeed answered EurActiv's questions addressing climate change challenges in Paris in December.
