    The evaluation project “Adapting Agriculture to Climate Change in the Gambia (GCP/GAM/033/LDF)” found that it was, generally, satisfactorily implemented to achieve its objective to “To strengthen diversified and sustainable livelihood strategies for reducing the impacts of climate variability and change in agriculture and livestock sector”. However, implementation in the livestock sector faced challenges, including the COVID-19 pandemic and cumbersome procurement processes among others. The project built capacities of implementing partner institutions, CSOs and farmer-based organizations, and supported the establishment of vegetable gardens for increased income and nutrition security of beneficiary communities. The planned animal drinking points, if successfully implemented, will facilitate watering of animals, thereby increasing their production and productivity. Other established schemes like beekeeping, poultry and small ruminants will also contribute to increasing beneficiary income-earning capacities. Additionally, the upgrading of the National Environment Agency (NEA) Lab and training of staff has positioned the agency to contribute towards addressing climate change issues.

    This terminal evaluation covers the project "Mainstreaming ecosystem-based approaches to climate-resilient rural livelihoods in vulnerable rural areas through the farmer field school (FFS) methodology", funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF). The overall performance of the project is moderately satisfactory. The project is relevant in its response to climate change adaptation needs in Senegal. It is coherent in its design and is in phase with the Plan Senegal Emergent (PSE). The evaluation found that the project has contributed to capacity building of institutional actors and farmers organizations on climate change adaptation, resilience and gender equity. Notable results include: capacity building of technicians, relay producers, farmers and agro-pastoralists on good practices of adaptation to climate change, through the field-school approach; the establishment of a climate resilience fund that has allowed to finance micro-projects in rural area; the dissemination of agro-climatic information; trainings on adapted climate change practices at the farmfer field school (FFS) and agropastoral field school (APFS) level.

    Caribbean Strategy for Climate-Resilient Forests and Rural Livelihoods 2022

    The Caribbean Strategy for Climate-Resilient Forests and Rural Livelihoods matches prioritised forestry initiatives for vertical and horizontal scaling with suitable funding streams. It also identifies possible regional and national partners for project development and execution. While the strategy is focused on forest resources management, it also emphasises poverty alleviation and food security in line with FAO’s Strategic Objectives. The strategy also has a gender and youth focus in addition to an emphasis on ecosystem services to support agricultural systems. Overall, the strategy can be thought of as a roadmap to mobilise investment for specific priority initiatives for vertical and horizontal scaling of climate resilience actions in the Caribbean forestry sector.
