Need of developing floating city in Maldives ?
Floating city of Maldives – In 2021, the UN’s World Meteorological Organization (WMO) notified that due to climate change our sea habitats are under threat and they also pointed out at the growing threat of rising sea levels.
Almost 41% of the worldwide population exists within 100 kms the coast.
World Meteorological Organization Secretary-General Professor Petteri Taalas told that there is an “urgent need” to save population from tropical hazards, such as waves, storms and sea level rise via multi-hazard warning systems and predictions.
Atoll countries are quite bigger at risk than other island nations, and may be Maldives Top the position – others like Kiribati, Tuvalu and the Marshall Islands – that have constructed habitat infrastructure on the tropical-and-sand rims of hollowed volcanoes.
The tides which have been given the name “King Tides” can clean slices of constructed infrastructure – the reason these waves are coming is storm that are becoming big day by day due to climatic changes in the world.
Planning of Floating City
Maldives is producing an unconventional floating city that reduces the outcome of changes in climate that is expected to be there in next decade. This will keep them above the level of rising sea.
The blue print of Maldives Floating City is given by Netherlands-based Dutch Docklands which will showcase 1000’s of waterfront houses and businesses floating around a bendable, serviceable grid across a 200-hectare lagoon.
This type of planning is specially important for Maldives Kind nations , where there are 25 low lying atolls which already the lowest as per the sea level.
Almost around 79% of the Maldives landscape region is at 1 mtr less as per sea level .

Design of Floating city of Maldives
This island city which will be Developed with the collaboration of Maldives government and Netherlands architects will be the only “island city” which will be structured in a warm-water lagoon and will be just 10mins by boat from Male.
Maldives flourishes on tourism and the coral shoals that magnetise hospitality companies is also providing the inspiration for this type of development. These hexagon-formed floating chunks are, in part, replica’s on the exclusive geometry of regional coral.
These will be attached to a circle of barrier islands, this will react as breakers under the water, which will eventually lessen the clash of lagoon waves and stabilise assembly on the surface.
“The Maldives Floating City does not require any land reclamation, therefore has a minimal impact on the coral reefs,” said by Mohamed Nasheed, past president of the Maldives, speaker of parliament and Climate Vulnerable Forum Ambassador for Ambition.
“What’s more, giant new reefs will be grown to act as water breakers. Our adaptation to climate change mustn’t destroy nature but work with it, as the Maldives Floating City proposes. In the Maldives, we cannot stop the waves, but we can rise with them.”
The islands’ maritime past also controlled the blueprint of the infrastructure, it will all be low-rise and face the sea.
A matrix of overpasses, channels and harbours will offer entry across many components and will connect shops, houses and infrastructure across the lagoon.
The Project is due to start in 2022 and the evolution will be intact in stages over almost 5 years of time , hospital and school eventually is also in the bucket list.
Renewable energy will back the city with a smart grid and houses will be priced from $250,000 in a bid to attract a big sweep of purchasers including regional fishermen, who are living here from centuries.
Well as per the experts advice investing in floating city of Maldives will be profitable as it is not a township that is being built for weekend stays or for selling farm houses in nature, this floating is being built to accommodate the population which is living under threat of loosing its land due to high sea levels .
