Climate change: Togo bets on GCF support to adapt agriculture

(Togo First) - Togolese authorities began developing a concept note for eligibility for the Green Climate Fund on March 1. They plan to raise the necessary resources to finance climate-smart agriculture projects.

Specifically, Togo wants to implement innovative and competitive projects, including modern irrigation systems to increase productivity and reduce environmental impact. This preventive approach, the Ministry of Agriculture explains, will allow the country to resist the effects of climate change on agricultural yields in the years to come. "By 2030, if no adaptation measures are taken, all crops will be affected in Togo," said Konlani Dindiogue, Director of Cabinet of the Ministry of Agriculture.

Togo also seeks to ensure food security for its population through quantitative production. This ambition is the focus of the regional forums of agricultural producers in Togo (FOPAT), which aim to get farmers involved in the process of structural transformation of agriculture.
