ARE YOU AN OCEAN USER?
WE NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU
Noo Raajje is a program to protect ocean resources and livelihoods for all Maldivians. To ensure our plans are beneficial and inclusive for as many people as possible, we conducted a nationwide survey to learn how Maldivians use and value the ocean. This groundbreaking effort became the largest Ocean Use Survey in the world.
The Noo Raajje Ocean Use Survey Report offers a comprehensive overview of how Maldivians use and value the ocean space.
This report provides a detailed summary of the methodology used to design and implement the Noo Raajje Ocean Use Survey and the process to produce heatmaps of sector-based ocean use and value in the Maldives.

The Ocean Use Survey (OUS) is a participatory mapping survey that asks respondents to identify areas in the marine environment that they value or use.
Responses collected represent how and where Maldivians use the ocean space.
Your input will help inform the Maldives Marine Spatial Plan.
Responses are anonymous and individual spots will not be shared.
Noo Raajje is led by the Government of the Maldives.
The Waitt Institute creates and implements sustainable ocean plans in partnership with committed governments, local stakeholders and communities.
