Strengthening climate services and early warning systems in The Gambia for climate resilient development and adaptation to climate change - 2nd phase the GOTG/UNEP/LDCF/NAPA early warning project

The project responds directly to the priorities and actions identified in the Gambia’s National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA) on Climate Change. The NAPA articulates the need for securing, transferring and installing critical technologies, as well as developing the necessary systems for climate change-related information to permeate into decision-making processes. The technologies required to achieve these aims will increase the capacity of the national early warning network to forewarn and rapidly respond to extreme climate events. The NAPA clearly identifies a priority project on Early Warning Systems (EWS) along with projects associated with Food security, Coastal Zones, Energy, Health, Water resources and Terrestrial ecosystems.
