Government of the Gambia launches new project on Integrating Agriculture in National Adaptation Plans with support from joint FAO-UNDP NAP-Ag Programme
16 March 2018, The Gambia – In an effort to prepare its agricultural sector for the impacts of climate change and support low-carbon, climate-resilient development, the Government of the Gambia launched a new project on Integrating Agriculture in National Adaptation Plans this month.
Dingiri, The Gambia: When Bundauda Samasa was a boy, everyone knew to the day when the rains would start and stop sprinkling the fields in The Gambia’s Upper River Region, and what harvest of groundnuts, vegetables, rice and pulses to expect.
Now standing in his bleached, patchy fields skirting Dingiri village as donkeys pick at the odd tufts of straw, kicking up clouds of terracotta dust, 57-year-old Samasa yearns for the days when life was predictable because the seasons didn’t change.
UN Environment will implement the largest natural resource development project in the history of The Gambia to help the West African nation tackle climate change impacts and restore degraded forests, farmland and coastal zones.
Funded by a $20.5 million Green Climate Fund (GCF) grant and $5 million from the Government of the Gambia, the "Large-scale Ecosystem-based Adaptation Project in The Gambia" (EbA) was launched in January in the capital Banjul.

From Africa Renewal: May - July 2017
Recognizing that Africa is particularly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change, the World Meteorological Organization has launched the Training Programme on Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Reduction in Agriculture to improve the capacity of national technical services in West African countries. The programme seeks to reduce the impacts of natural disasters and climate change on the agricultural sector and to support sustainable development.

Brussels, 9 February 2017
Neven Mimica, Commissioner for International Cooperation and Development, is in The Gambia today meeting the newly elected President Adama Barrow and his new Government.
This website allows you to explore how different scenarios of global greenhouse gas emissions and adaptation to climate change could change the geography of food insecurity in developing and least-developed countries. By altering the levels of future global greenhouse gas emissions and/or the levels of adaptation, you can see how vulnerability to food insecurity changes over time, and compare and contrast these different future scenarios with each other and the present day.

The unprecedented project will generate cash returns of at least $77.5 million
Nairobi, 1 July 2016 - A UNEP-backed project that will help The Gambia adapt to the devastating impacts of climate change is expected to raise the average annual income of thousands of households by as much as $770.
The Green Climate Fund, which invests in low-emission and climate resilient development around the world, has agreed to inject $20.5 million into the project, which will see Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) rolled out across rural parts of one of the world's poorest countries.
