Togo : Investments made in agriculture have almost doubled since 2005

(Togo First) - From 2010 to 2019, the government’s investments in agriculture surged from XOF25.99 billion to XOF50.79 billion. 

This helped boost the wealth created by the sector from XOF644 billion to more than XOF1,350 billion. 

Regarding food security, the coverage rate of food needs stood at 137% (2019), for plant-based foods, and 60% for meat products. Also, the country was able to prevent corn prices from exploding as they did in 2005.  

Due to its performances, Togo’s agriculture was distinguished in 2013 and 2015 by the FAO, thus lauding its exceptional efforts to improve food and nutritional security.
