Floating Islands to Save The Maldives from Rising Sea Levels


Global warming has raised a lot of concerns, especially from island countries that are worried about the rising sea levels. A company called Dutch Docklands has come up with a concept that in the future could be adopted by such countries as The Maldives.

The Floating Beach is a project involving floating islands that will remain above the sea level and the island nations, which depend a lot on tourism, could be the company's first clients, informs BlueLivingIdeas.

It is worth mentioning that The Maldives and Tuvalu have recently signed an agreement with Dutch Docklands to create a number of floating islands that are meant to replace the natural islands which in the near future could go underwater due to global warming.
