The following case study is one in a growing series that details the work of Equator Prize winners – vetted and peer-reviewed best practices in community-based environmental conservation and sustainable livelihoods. This case is intended to inspire policy dialogue needed to take local success to scale, to improve the global knowledge base on local environment and development solutions, and to serve as models for replication.
The United Nations Development Programme in The Gambia conducts a Development Forum on topical issues. These fora have served as a platform to discuss, share information and debate thematic issues. It is a direct mechanism for the advocacy and analysis of development activities being implemented in The Gambia, as well as to increase knowledge, share best practices and build partnerships. The resulting outcomes also serve to inform policy making and its interventions.
UNDP is the UN's global development network, an organization advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life. We are on the ground in some 170 countries and territories, working with them on their own solutions to global and national development challenges. As they develop local capacity, they draw on the people of UNDP and our wide range of partners. UNDP has been supporting the Government and people of The Gambia in addressing development challenges, through strengthening and building institutions that promote inclusive sustainable development and democratic governance.
