project origin c ontext rationale

The introduction of non-organic pollutants such as plastic bags has devastating effects on the life of local communities. Its destroy biodiversity such as oyster or fish and also posed a health threat on the people.

  • The indiscriminate cutting of mangroves aggravate the already precarious situation of coastal communities cause by sea level rise leading to flood, salt intrusion, salinization of shallow coastal aquifers etc.
  • The lost the beautiful sand beaches, bird’s habitat threaten the vibrant tourism industry of the Gambia

Project Origin, Context & Rationale
slide4

To reduce the impact of climate change on coastal communities due to sea level rise by empowering communities to develop their own approaches to adaptation that go along side improving their livelihood.

Target group:

Goal
project o bjectives

To Restore damaged mangrove plantation in coastal communities

  • To reduce coastal vulnerability to climate change as result of sea level rise.
  • To improve the communities income level through sustainable use of mangrove product such as timber and oyster.
  • To enhance community resilience to climate change impact
  • To promote community/youth engagement in climate change solution in the Gambia
  • To build the capacity of community members to manage local ecosystems to reduce climate change risks
  • To provoke active advocacy and public education programs aiming at transforming local community, especially the youth, into conservation advocates and environmental stewards.
Project Objectives
inspired by earth charter

We are inspired EC principle II whichsays:

  • Protect and restore the integrity of Earth's ecological systems, with special concern for biological diversity and the natural processes that sustain life
  •  Prevent harm as the best method of environmental protection and, when knowledge is limited, apply a precautionary approach.
  • Adopt patterns of production, consumption, and reproduction that safeguard Earth's regenerative capacities, human rights, and community well-being.

Project plan Activities
expected outcome

At least 5 villages visited and up to 1000 people sensitised.

  • Improved public awareness on climate change, its affects and strategies for adaptations.
  • community participation on conservation, rehabilitation and restoration of mangroves ecosystems enhanced
  • Reduction of vulnerability of coastal communities to erosion and floods as mangroves will act as barriers preventing upsurge of water waves.
  • Improved and maintain a healthy biodiversity in the area
  • Increase in marine wildlife; birds and mammals which use these areas as their habitats, thus attracting eco tourist.
