The bottom 20%: 197 islands

Out of curiosity checked the 100 day target of transport from Ministry of transport website; since mobility of labour and goods are a must to create a vibrant economy in any place. Not to mention saving the expense people from islands incur on transport, in order to get basic services such as medical from regional hospitals.

By looking at above picture it appears that, only 1 out of 5 interventions on transport sector involves islands. The rest is targeted to Male' region. Is it because islands and atolls meet the basic criteria with regard to availability of transport, ie; basic ferry service?

Transport is just one key sector. One must wonder how much attention or percentage of interventions are targeted to atolls from other sectors? Hope it won't come to only 20%  for 197 islands of Maldives.
