Welcome Message

Since the dawn of the second republic, The Gambia formulated many development strategies to confront its various development challenges. Among these strategies are the Vision 2020 paper and the Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers I and II the later of which is Millennium Development Goals based. The preparations of these strategic documents were done in participatory manners with Gambian stakeholders and in collaboration with our development partners. We thereupon continued to work with them both in the mobilisation of necessary resources and the assessment and evaluation of the respective programmes and projects. I would like to take this opportunity once again to thank all such development partners viz. the International Organisations, bilateral government partners and multilateral organisations, religious affiliated organisations and the Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs).
