The GCCA project “Support to The Gambia for integrated coastal zone management (ICZM) and the mainstreaming of climate change’ has been in the news in the Gambia, here below some of the articles.
The project engaged in actions such as cleaning coastal areas and dump sites to ensure proper environmental management. Fafanding Kitri Kinteh, GCCA+ project officer for operations commented: “the new GCCA+ Climate Resilient Coastal and Marine Zone Project aims at consolidating results and positive experiences of the previous project. It seeks to benefit coastal communities and help them to adapt to impacts of climate change through institution strengthening, knowledge management and demonstrated implementation.”
Gambia regional Governor Ebrima Dampha expressed his support: “I took note of the excellent collaboration of the European Union in their relentless efforts at ensuring that The Gambia not only gets an integrated national plan and strategy to combat climate change and its effects but also to help build up the resilience of our communities against it, particularly those along coastal and marine zones, but in effect, the country all over. This is in line with our own National Climate Change policy and indeed all other international environmental treaties that the Gambia is signatory”.
