Togo seeks about $100 million for its new forest management plan

(Togo First) - To foster a sustainable management of forests in the country, Togo’s government just developed and put in place the national forest investment plan (PNIF), valued at $101 million.

The 2018-2022 plan includes three main axes, namely: managing protected areas, managing forest ecosystems, and third sensitization and resource mobilization.

Regarding the last, fund mobilization, a meeting was held in Lomé on May 6, 2019, to discuss the matter. Togo’s technical and financial partners, actors of forest sector, representatives of the public sector and of the private sector also were present at this roundtable. The goal here was to explore opportunities for partnerships, as well as cooperation and financing mechanisms to back the PNIF.

Togo’s new plan, let’s indicate, aligns with a forest ecosystems convergence programme. The latter which involves coordinating the management of forest resources in West Africa was voted by ECOWAS member-States in Abidjan this year.

From 24.4%, Togo wants to increase its forest coverage to 30%.
