Togo: Half a billion CFA invested in cattle production areas

(Togo First) - In the 2021-2022 agricultural campaign, CFA500 million will be dedicated to cattle production development zones (ZAPB). This was reported in the minutes of the council of ministers held on February 10, 2021, in Kara. 

A ZAPB is an area where cattle from a given region are raised. It has natural assets and basic social infrastructure such as schools, dispensaries, veterinary clinics, etc.

The project is funded by the Program for Support to Vulnerable People (PAPV). The disbursed funds will serve to develop 10 pilot ZAPBs. 

According to the council of ministers, they will be located in the following prefectures: Zio, Lacs, Haho, Ogou, Anié, Blitta, Tchamba, Bassar, Kozah and Oti

In the long run, 80 sites of 100 ha each will be established across all the five economic regions of the Togo. 

Let’s recall that the country aims to make agriculture a major growth driver. In this order, CFA66 billion is allocated to the sector, which is 8.4% of all resources dedicated to the ministries and institutions.
