A hook-up between the Green Climate Fund and UN Environment is set to build resilience to climate change and improve livelihoods in the West African nation.
Climate change is exacerbating the effects of poverty in The Gambia, which is one of the poorest countries in Africa.
Large-scale “ecosystem-based adaptation” is necessary to build the climate resilience of rural Gambian communities, whose livelihoods are threatened by the impacts of climate change. Ecosystems-based adaptation provides nature-based solutions that help people and communities survive and thrive in the face of variations in climate.
A ground-breaking new project will restore agricultural landscapes and degraded ecosystems – including forests, mangroves and savannahs – using climate-resilient tree and shrub species across an area of at least 10,000 hectares.
The Gambian Ministry of Environment, Climate Change, Forestry, Water, and Wildlife is executing the project; UN Environment as a Green Climate Fund Accredited Entity is supporting it; and the Green Climate Fund is the main funder.
