The Gambia 2050 Climate Vision
Four strategic axes of policy action are identified: 1) Climate-resilient food and landscapes: Agriculture, food security, forestry and natural resources (including water, biodiversity and wildlife), 2) Low emissions and resilient economy: Energy, transport, infrastructure and the key economic sectors of tourism and financial services, 3) Climate-resilient people: Health, education, equitable social development and human settlements, and 4) Climate-aware Integrated Coastal Zone Management.
Net zero emissions
Strive to maintain 30% of the total land area of The Gambia under forest cover, with further efforts to implement afforestation actions which will contribute reductions of 275.4 GgCO2e in 2025 and 330.5 GgCO2e in 2030
commit to introducing efficient, green, renewable and sustainable energy sources to power our economy and meet our domestic and household needs. The implementation of renewable energy sources will contribute to GHG reductions of 78.5 GgCO2e in 2025 and 104 GgCO2e in 2030.
commit to progressively introducing clean and energy-efficient modes of transport, noting that deployment of energy-efficient vehicles will produce GHG emission reductions of 40.8 GgCO2e in 2020, 114.5 GgCO2e in 2025 and 193.3 GgCO2e in 2030.
