Sustainable Development

  • Supporting the formulation and adoption of pro-poor, climate-resilient strategy; climate change resilience, low carbon, energy, land use and coastal and marine management policies; supporting the integration of climate-resilient priorities and policies in development plans and processes; supporting the piloting of renewable energy and promote energy-efficient inititiatives and multifunctional platforms; supporting the revision of land use policy with special emphasis on women; and providing technical support to disaster risk reduction structures at decentralized levels.

  • Supporting and promoting community based natural resources management initiatives such as ecotourism. UNDP will strengthen local capacities and governance structures for community based natural resource management.

  • This project will invest in strengthening current systems to lead to a fully operational EWS for the Gambia at the institutional level which can in turn serve local communities particularly in remote and vulnerable regions. This will be carried out through improving national capabilities to generate and use climate information in the planning for and management of climate-induced hazard risks, developing core skills and competencies to analyze the climate risks at hand, acquiring relevant technologies to generate accurate and reliable data, improving early warning dissemination and advisory communications; and supporting communities in the uptake of climate information at the local level.
