Gambia: Ecosystem-based Adaptation

United Nations Environment Programme (2019)

UN Environment and the government of Gambia have launched the country’s largest adaptation project "Large-scale Ecosystem-based Adaptation in the Gambia: Developing a Climate-resilient, Natural Resource-based Economy", which aims to develop a sustainable natural resource-based economy. Ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA) is central to the project’s activities. EbA is the tactic of using nature and healthy ecosystems to reduce the impacts of climate change.
