Togo - Togo Agro-Food Processing Project

The Togo Agro-Food Processing Project (PTA-Togo) forms part of Togo's new Agricultural Strategy, which aims to create more value added through production, processing and marketing, while ensuring social inclusion and environmental protection. To this end, PTA Togo is seeking to gradually pool various support (water, energy, transport, etc.), agroindustrial activity promotion and service development infrastructure (IT, finance, etc.) within one area. In accordance with the requirements of the Integrated Safeguards System (ISS), the project has been classified under Category 1 due to the magnitude of the expected environmental and social impacts (project covering over 2000 ha of land for irrigation purposes or the expected construction of more than 50 km of road). The Togo Agro-Food Processing Zone Project provides for encroachment on a total area of 165 000 ha, within which provision has been made to build small dams and irrigation schemes of 1000 to 2000 ha, as well as feeder roads of at least 130 km.
