Gambia: FAO Promotes Climate Change Adaptation Mechanisms

The country office of the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) in collaboration with the Ministry of Fisheries Monday organised a daylong terminal workshop on sub-regional Technical Cooperation Programme (TCP) on climate change adaptation in marine artisanal fisheries.

The forum, which marked the end of the project, brought stakeholders from different institutions at a hotel in Kololi.

Speaking on the occasion, FAO representative in The Gambia, Perpetua Katepa Kalala, said the fisheries dependent communities in The Gambia, Sierra Leone and Senegal lack the requisite skills and knowledge in water and fisheries resource management, leading to overfishing and degradation of aquatic resources.
