In view of the 21st Conference of the Parties (COP 21) in December 2015 in Paris, the Alliance Française de Male and the French Embassy in Sri Lanka and the Maldives, is organizing an environmental and educational programme “Focus Climat’.
The objective is to achieve a legally binding and universal agreement on climate, from all the nations of the world, which goal is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to limit the global temperature increase to 2°C above pre-industrial levels.
In order to make the public aware of the environmental issues in the world and more specifically in Maldives, Alliance Française de Male is conducting this programme in different places in Maldives: Laamu Atoll ( Gan, Funadhoo islands), Male atolls ( Male, Villigili islands)- in various venues (schools, colleges, Youth Centers, institutions…).
