Construction workers move along the wide streets and apartment blocks in Hulhumalé, Maldives on March 11, 2009. Hulumalé, an entirely man-made island that was started by filling in the reef in 1993 may be one of the solutions the Maldives has to combat the effects of climate change as it is 2 meters (6 feet) above sea level. It is estimated that the island will accommodate up to 150,000 people upon completion.
