The objective of the project is strengthen the climate monitoring capabilities, early warning systems and available information for responding to climate shocks and planning adaptation to climate change in The Gambia.

1.The EWS project in Gambia responds directly to the priorities and actions identified in the NAPA of Gambia. The NAPA articulates the need for securing, transferring and installing critical technologies, as well as developing the necessary systems for climate change-related information to permeate into decision-making processes. The technologies required to achieve these aims will increase the capacity of the national early warning network to forewarn and rapidly respond to extreme climate events. The NAPA clearly identifies a priority project on Early Warning Systems (EWS) along with projects associated with Food security, Coastal Zones, Energy, Health, Water resources and Terrestrial ecosystems.This project is fully in line with LDCF/SCCF focal area objective

2: Increase adaptive capacity to respond to the impacts of climate change, including variability, at local, national, regional and global level, and also objective

3: Promote transfer and adoption of adaptation technology. The project is specifically aligned with outcomes linked to these objectives including increased knowledge and understanding of climate variability and change-induced risks at country level and in targeted vulnerable areas, strengthened adaptive capacity to reduce risks to climate-induced economic losses, successful demonstration, deployment, and transfer of relevant adaptation technology in targeted areas and enhanced enabling environment to support adaptation related technology transfer.
