African Development Bank Group in Fresh $16 Million Funding for Youth, Women in the Gambia’s Agriculture

A total of $16.08 million is set to enhance production for millions of people employed in Gambia’s agriculture value chain. This follows a move by the African Development Bank Group (AFDB) to approve the fresh funding allocation to enhance the Gambia’s food security initiatives.

The country’s ambitious Agriculture and Food Security Project, initiated in 2021, received the financial support on March 4. With this injection of funds, The Gambia is poised to make significant advancements in its agricultural sector, with a focus on improving living standards for its most vulnerable populations.
