|Landscape of the Year 2018/2019 – Senegal/The Gambia News (13)|
News from JUST ACT, partner organization of NFI in the Landscape of the Year
NFI has reported on its partner organization in TheGambia (JUST ACT - Janjanbureh Uniting Sustainable Tourism And Community Training) on several occasions, most recently on the blog about the Friends of Nature journey "Tour d'horizon" in January 2018 (interview with the organization's director, Omar Jammeh, in English, German and French ---> ) and in the Info-Mail Science (German).
These reports concerned the work of JUST ACT in the field of sustainable tourism. This is currently taking place within the framework of the "The Gambia Youth Empowerment Project" (2017 - 2021), funded by the EU and the ITC (International Trade Centre), to “boost job creation and support long-term economic sustainability for the Gambia”.
In view of the fact that 60% of the Gambian population are young people under the age of 25, this program is also likely to be seen as an instrument for "fighting root causes of migration”. JUST ACT is carrying out various actions as a youth organization competent in the field of sustainable tourism. The organization was also involved in the project launch of a “Youth and Trade Roadmap of the Gambia - Tourism Sector” on May 15, 2018.
