RESEARCH PROPOSAL ON THE SUBMERGENCE OF MALDIVE

Summary
My topic is the contribution of global warming to the submergence of the Maldives. A
research on this topic is not only timely but also necessary given the recent hurricanes that hit
Texas, United States. My choice of Maldives for the study is based on the observation that a vast
majority of the catastrophic consequences of global warming are felt along the coastal regions. I
will use both secondary and primary data sources. In particular, population census reports and field
observation will be my primary data sources. Secondary sources will include published case
studies and peer reviews. The collected data will be analyzed with the help of both quantitative
and qualitative techniques such as content analysis and correlation analysis.
Theoretical Basis for The Project
The question I want to address in this paper is, can global warming cause the submergence
of the Maldives and the subsequent displacement of its people? Although there are other factors
that may cause the submergence Maldives, I expect to find that global warming is responsible for
the submergence of the Maldives and the subsequent displacement of its people. I expect to
validate this predicted finding because I firmly believe that global warming causes climate change.
I view, the submergence of the Maldives is feasible because of the rising sea water levels. Besides,
I am utterly convinced that global warming causes the rise in atmospheric temperatures that trigger
the melting of ice on high mountains. The molten ice finally finds its way into the Indian Ocean,
thereby causing the rise in sea water level. I find this topic interesting because coastal regions are
prone to tsunamis, yet people enjoy the sandy beaches at the coastal islands.

I find the following literature relevant to my topic.

Data Type
The types of data I would expect to use for my research largely depends on the topic. I
would require quantitative data to assess the possible submergence of the Maldives and the
impending catastrophic consequences of global warming on the submergence and displacement of
the Maldives inhabitants. Survey and ethnographic fieldworks are likely to assist me in gathering

quantitative data for the proposed research. I will be interested in the environmental condition of
the Maldives as well as the climatic changes in the Island. Besides, data on the size of the Maldives
population and its demographic characteristics are expected to give a rough estimate of the
magnitude of the damage by a potential submergence. The problems I may encounter researching
the topic include vagaries of nature, rejection by the locals, and lack of cooperation from the
relevant authorities. I may drown in the Indian Ocean, the locals may be apprehensive about my
presence during ethnographic fieldwork, and the authorities may conceal the most crucial
population data.
Contribution of the Results
The importance of the analysis and bibliography in understanding the submergence of the
Maldives cannot be overstated. Foremost, the analysis will reveal the relationship between climate
change and the rise in sea level in the Maldives. This connection will further the understanding of
global warming implications to climate change and thus, its role in the rise of sea water level. The
analysis will also highlight the perceptions and perspectives on climate change in the coastal
islands of Maldives. These viewpoints and perceptions will shed more light on why global
warming is a thorny issue in the flesh of the people of Maldives. Additionally, the population and
environmental analysis will underscore the role of climate change politics and policy discourses
in the expected submergence of the Maldives. Global warming is a serious environmental issue in
the world today and global environmental bodies are seeking the most appropriate and amicable
solutions to global warming. In this respect, the selected previous studies and the analysis of the
results will contribute to the understanding of a problem that the world is currently grappling with
of global warming.

THE SUBMERGENCE OF MALDIVE
Introduction
The Maldives is situated in the continent of Asia along the Indian Ocean it is an island and
happens to be the smallest country in Asia. The island is about one meter above sea level in
general. The reason why I chose to study the Maldives is that of its location and it’s one of the
countries that are showing the effects of global warming. Due to the rising sea levels and erosion
of its beaches by the sea, some of its habitats such as the beach hotels have had to put up
reinforcements; sea barriers and even relocate their structures in the last ten years.
Project Analysis
In this project, I plan to study the impact associated with global warming in the last century and
the current, with my case study being the Republic of Maldives; I will demonstrate how the
effects of global warming are affecting its habitats and ways of regulating it. Indeed research has
shown that the Maldives can be submerged due to global warming. Viner, 2001 sited that if the
current trend persists, the sea level will rise by one meter before the end of this century. This is,
therefore, the ultimate submergence of the Republic of Maldives. As it is today, the coral reef in
the coast of Maldives is disappearing into the sea due to the rising sea level and erosion. The reef
is nature’s fast line of defense against the dangers of the sea and therefore should protect the
island in case of such unpredictable ocean weather patterns. It’s literally unimaginable what
hurricane Katrina; August of 2005 and Tsunami that hit Japan 2011 would have done to this
Island if it was in their path just as the Bahamas was and the coast of Japan respectively given
that the Maldives is a meter above sea level. Although these disasters may have been caused by
other facts, global warming is to blame for the advance destruction they caused.
THE SUBMERGENCE OF MALDIVE
The U.S. Geological survey in 2015 indicated that Alaska’s glaciers melt at the rate of seventy
five billion metric tons per year. In addition, all Mountains’ glaciers are melting; including the
South Pole and the North Pole. The Maldives is about 300 square kilometers and has a
population of almost half a million. The resulting glacier water goes to the sea and therefore rises
its water level. I intend to use this quantitative data to show how global warming brings about
climate change which results to the rise of sea levels and such unpredictable weather and
ultimately the submergence of an island like Maldives and displacement of its population.
The major problem am facing in this research is the logistical challenge and I may not make to
visit the Maldives due to time and economic constraints. In the event I make it, there are still the
issues of correspondents not being cooperative and the government not willing to give
information due to its nature of politics and bureaucracy.
