The Gambia 2050 Climate Vision

legislation type Executive
Road Map/Vision
Passed in 2021
This document sets the government's strategy to meet commitments made under the Paris Agreement, move towards resilience and net zero carbon emissions by 2050. It underlines the long-term strategy (LTS) for low greenhouse gas emissions and climate-resilient development.

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 
    Economy-wide | Fixed level target | Target year: 2050 | Base year: 2021
  • 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

    LULUCF | Fixed level target | Target year: 2030 | Base year: 2021
  • 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.

    Energy | Fixed level target | Base year: 2021
  • 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.

    Transport | Fixed level target | Base year: 2020
  • Net-zero by 2050
    Economy-wide | Target year: 2050 | Base year:
  • 2.7% emission reduction (below BAU) by 2030 unconditionally, 45.4% by 2030 conditional on international financial support
    Economy-wide | Target year: 2030
  • 30% renewable energy in national power mix by 2030
    Energy | Target year: 2030
  • Maintain 30% of total land area under forest cover in 2030
    LULUCF | Target year: 2030
  • Reduce 275.4 GgCO2e by 2025 and 330.5 GgCO2e by 2030 with afforestation.
    LULUCF | Target year: 2030
  • Reduce 78.5 GgCO2e by 2025 and 104 GgCO2e by 2030 with implementation of renewable energy sources.
    Energy | Target year: 2030
  • Reduce 40.8 GgCO2e by 2020, 114.5 GgCO2e by 2025 and 193.3 GgCO2e by 2030 with deployment of energy-efficient vehicles.
    Transport | Target year: 2030
