    Enhancing Community-Based Management of Dryland Forests in the Gambia - GCP/GAM/031/GFF 2023
    Also available in:

    One of the major environmental problems faced by the Gambia is the degradation and destruction of its forests, mainly the dryland forests in the northern part of the country, The underlying driver is the increasing population pressure and lack of adequate socio-economic/livelihood opportunities. Dryland forests in the country play a pivotal role in halting desertification. Although the forest sector in the Gambia is reported to contribute to about only 1.2 percent of the national gross domestic product (GDP), from a socio-economic perspective, it holds great significance to rural livelihoods. Dryland forest ecosystems provide supporting, regulating and provisioning services. The regulating and supporting services are significant in a larger context, agricultural and livestock production account for nearly 30 percent of GDP and employ more than 70 percent of the labourforce. Strong and healthy ecosystem services are therefore important for continued progress in sustainable agricultural and livestock production in the country. Although several initiatives/ programmeshave been implemented to address this situation, there are still barriers to dealing with the issue effectively. The objective of this project was to reduce forest degradation in the northern part of the country through the strengthening and expansion of community-forestry and the implementation of Sustainable Forest Management (SFM) practices.

    The “Community-based Sustainable Dryland Forest management” project is a 5-year Global Environment Facility (GEF) funded initiative. Its objective is to reduce forest degradation in the northern part of The Gambia (North Bank Region, Central River Region-North, and Upper River Region-North) and part of the south bank (Lower River Region) through the strengthening and expansion of community forestry and implementation of Sustainable Forest Management (SFM) practices.

    The terminal evaluation report for the FAO-GEF 5 project provides a comprehensive analysis and assessment of the project's relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, and sustainability. Drawing upon a wealth of data, including project documents, stakeholder interviews and field visits, this report evaluates the project's objectives against the actual results achieved. It offers a detailed examination of the project results and identifies key strengths and weaknesses, key lessons learned, factors that contributed to realization of project results as well as potential areas for improvement. The participatory forest management project was implemented through a partnership between FAO, the Kenya Forest Service, the Kenyan Wildlife Service, Samburu County Government, Kenya Forestry Research Institute, Community Forest Associations and the Suyian Trust. The evaluation assesses the extent to which the project’s global environmental objective (strengthen biodiversity conservation and enhance carbon sequestration) and development objective (improve livelihoods of communities from dryland forest-based products and services) were realized.
