Gambia: NBR Youths Resolved to Tackle Desertification

he G ambia's North Bank Region is the most affected by desertification, and it is against this backdrop that the youth of that region committed themselves to plant 10, 000 trees. This was a resolution passed by the NBR conference delegates, led by Lamin Sonko, in the 2012 NaYCONF. In their resolution, he added, they also recommended that the government and private sector create tertiary institutions in their region to help reduce rate of rural-urban migration. The region's youths further called on the government to provide them with skill training centres for building the capacity of youth in NBR.
