GEF Background

The project ‘Enhancing Resilience of Vulnerable Coastal Areas & Communities to Climate Change in The Gambia’ is a Gambia Government project implemented by the National Environment Agency (NEA) and funded by the LDC-Fund of the Global Environment Facility (GEF) in collaboration with United Nations Development Program (UNDP). The Gambia has 80km of open ocean coast and about 200km of sheltered coast along the Gambia River which is dominated by extensive mangrove systems and mud flats. In view of the concentration of the socio-economic, cultural assets and activities in the low lying coastal areas; The Gambia is particularly vulnerable to climate change impacts including sea level rise, increased saline intrusion and flooding from drainage congestion during torrential rains. Given the lack of institutional capacity to systematically identify and address climate driven changes in risk patterns, the NEA/UNDP/GEF project is intervening in selected vulnerable communities in WCR, LRR and the NBR of the Gambia to reduce the vulnerability to sea-level rise and associated impacts of climate change by December, 2017.The started in January 2014.
