Abstract:

The Poverty profile of the Gambia indicates that poverty over the years is still prevalent across regions in the Country. However, there has been a shift in the incidence of extreme poverty across administrative regions. Based on the National Household Poverty Survey 2003, estimated head count ratio for poverty is 59%.1 between 2003 and 2008 Poverty has only dropped 3% far below the annual target of 2% as set out in the PRSP II. In fact poverty headcount increased from 59% in 2003 to 61% in 2005.2 The shift in the incidence of poverty indicate a policy gap and since poverty varies greatly along multiple dimensions, urgent action for its alleviation should take the form of a multi-sectoral approach which requires broad-based policies and investment coupled with instruments of social protection and safety nets. 3.
