Climate Change National Policy

Executive
Policy
Adaptation Framework
Mitigation Framework
Passed in 2016
The National Climate Change Policy of the Gambia sets the country's institutional arrangements for coordination and mainstreaming, outlines a new integrated approach to resource mobilisation, and develops a clear policy direction for human resource development. It emphasises the links between climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction. Lastly, it outlines the approach to be followed to develop the implementation framework for the Policy, through the subsequent National Climate Change Response Strategy and Action Plan.
 
The goal of the Policy is, by 2025, to achieve the mainstreaming of climate change into national planning, budgeting, decision-making, and programme implementation, through effective institutional mechanisms, coordinated financial resources, and enhanced human resources capacity. The strategy is designed around four policy clusters: 1) Climate resilient food systems and landscapes, 2) Low emissions and resilient economy, 3) Climate resilient people and 4) Managing coastlines in a changing environment. Sectoral policies, for example in the agricultural and energy sectors, are then detailed.
