The Maldives is a country made up of over a thousand islands, some of which are directly threatened by climate change.
Mohamed Nasheed, the president of the Maldives, is currently in London, trying to build up momentum for the upcoming Cancun Climate Change summit.
But he faces an uphill battle because climate change is rapidly disappearing from the international radar.
The conference in Copenhagen last year failed to meet expectations and left many disappointed. Some now feel that Cancun may be the last chance for climate change talks.
President Nasheed speaks with Al Jazeera's Stephen Cole about his optimism for progress in mitigating emissions, the economics of renewable energy technology, his goals to make the Maldives carbon neutral and a leader in low-carbon development and what he sees as the most immediate threat to his island country.
This episode of Talk to Jazeera aired from Sunday, December 5, 2010.
