Togo - Togo Agro-Food Processing Project (PTA-Togo) - Additional Financing from the Nigeria Trust Fund (NTF)

16-Apr-2019

Management hereby submits this memorandum and recommendation concerning the grant of additional funding from the Nigeria Trust Fund (NTF), not exceeding UA 4 million, to finance the activities of the Togo Agro-Food Processing Project (PTA-Togo). These supplementary financial resources will be used to develop 600 ha of irrigated areas with full water control downstream of the B1 dam, build 4 mini-drinking water supply (DWS) networks fed by the new boreholes that will be drilled and equipped, drill 30 boreholes equipped human-operated pumps and rehabilitate 8 boreholes equipped with human-operated pumps. These additional activities will be perfectly feasible in the current planning of PTA-Togo implementation, which will help increase the outcomes of this project, especially by boosting the resilience of the agro-pastoral production system to climate change, and by improving access to drinking water for rural households and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) engaged in the processing activities planned for 10 agricultural processing centres (CTA).
