Work­ing closely with the lo­cal com­mu­nity and marine bi­ol­o­gists, the cul­tural cen­tre will pro­mote the life and crafts of the is­land na­tion and in­tro­duce glob­ally prac­ticed marine con­ser­va­tion schemes ded­i­cated to pre­serv­ing and en­hanc­ing the bio-diver­sity of the Mal­dives’ pres­ti­gious marine ecosys­tem. The Town­ship and Phase One of the project are ex­pected to be com­pleted by the third quar­ter of 2018, while the sec­ond phase is set to com­plete within the next five years.
