Food System Resilience Program: Lomé Hosts First Annual Synthetis Meeting

(Togo First) - Lomé hosts this week the first synthesis meeting of support missions for the Food System Resilience Program (FSRP) for 2024. Funded by the World Bank, ECOWAS, CILSS, and CORAF, among others, the FSRP aims to improve food security and strengthen agricultural systems in the sub-region.

The meeting began on May 15 and will end on May 17. It brings together FSRP actors and partners who will discuss digital agricultural services, integrated landscape management, and regional trade enhancement. The roundtable aims to draw lessons, consolidate coordination, promote cross-learning, and identify progress and challenges in FSRP implementation.

"The main objective of this meeting is to draw lessons learned from support missions, consolidate coordination of regional and national activities, promote cross-learning, create synergies among all FSRP stakeholders, and identify progress made as well as challenges encountered in FSRP implementation," stated the program coordination.

The event will feature an exhibition of agricultural products and technologies developed by program beneficiaries. Togolese producers will showcase their achievements, highlighting the positive impacts of FSRP.

This evaluation comes after FSRP actions reached approximately 1.3 million direct beneficiaries in 2023, including nearly 40% women, in countries such as Togo, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Mali, Niger, Sierra Leone, and Chad.
