Country focus report 2022: supporting climate resilience and a just energy transition in Gambia

The Gambia is vulnerable to the impacts of climate change from increases in temperature, decreases in rainfall, and a rise in the sea level, which affect millions of people and make adaptation more urgent. Rapid changes in climate tend to have severe effects on a country’s key economic sectors such as agriculture, tourism, and health. They also erode the productivity of local water and food systems, decrease soil quality, and undermine sustainable development.
