Maldives Environmental Sensitivity Index (ESI) Project

The Maldives Environmental Sensitivity Index was a project to develop a series of maps that identify sensitive coastal resources at risk in the event of an oil spill. The resultant maps help emergency responders prioritize cleanup efforts if an oil spill were to occur among the islands of Laamu Atoll in the Republic of Maldives. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Maldives National Defence Forces (MNDF) and Maldives Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) formed the core of the ESI team.
