About the Book
The Maldives is the smallest Asian country in both population and land area. With an average ground level of 1.5 metres above
sea level, it is the lowest country on the planet. It is also the country with the lowest highest point in the world, at 2.3 metres.
The Maldives sinking is a great concern for the Maldivian people. Yet the beautiful people of the Maldives continue to smile.
