Lomé hosts Ecowas meeting on land degradation

(Togo First) - Lomé is hosting a two-day meeting to discuss the sustainable management of lands in all Ecowas States. The talks which began yesterday will be steered by the heads of sustainable land management of the various ministries of agriculture of the 15 member-States. 

The talks fall under the program for the restoration of degraded land, for food and nutrition security in West Africa. Their primary goal is to boost the capacity of countries to sustainably manage agricultural land and increase arable land. 

Togo, let’s note, has already validated the environmental preservation program which mainly aims at “efficiently tackling land degradation, restoring more than 80% of degraded land, and achieving neutrality in terms of land degradation by 2030.”

Let’s also recall that this program is financially backed by the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation, and technically by FAO.
