In this way the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), under the Emergency Assistance Project for the fourth time, set training programs to help Gambian farmers adapt to climate changes. Thus, farmers will be able to better manage the weather risks in order to preserve their productive capacity.

The objective of these programs, according to the FAO assistant rep, is to ensure that they build the capacity of communities and targeted vulnerable households and people, to enable them tackle hazards like drought and floods.” says an article from Allafrica.

It is important to point out that the main target of all helps for Gambia is to learn them how to be autonomous. They need to face problems by themselves to evolve and reach a better level of development.
