National Agroforestry Strategy for The Gambia 2022 - 2032

In The Gambia, climatic and non-climatic stressors continue impacting principal ecosystems which are mainly agricultural lands and forests, contributing to high rates of de-vegetation and degradation. The communities rely on crop and livestock husbandry for their livelihoods, with agriculture supporting 26% of the GDP, employing 45% of the population, and accounting for 20-30% of total landcover. However, productivity continues to be low due to human and nonhuman activities, necessitating urgent actions to reverse the trend in the wake a of changing climate.
