‘Apocalyptic’ Island of Waste in the Maldives
This is not “Waste Management”, this is dumping and burnig.
The Maldives are known as an unspoilt, paradise island destination for upmarket tourists but the BBC’s Simon Reeve has paid a visit to a part of the Maldives that tourists do not see – a huge island waste dump.
He was accompanied by local conservationist Marie Saleem who explained how the country struggles with waste management.
The Maldives’ government told the BBC they were looking at ways to tackle their waste problem.
