FAO announces several financings to support agroforestry in Togo

(Togo First) - The FAO will grant Togolese Forestry and Agricultural Producers Organization (OPFA) several financings, ranging from $5,000 to $70,000, this year. The UN agency’s local office launched a call for proposals to this end this month. 

In effect, the FAO will collaborate with the National Coordination or Farmers’ Organizations and Agricultural Farmers (CTOP) to support actors operating in the agroforestry and forestry sectors.  

“The call for proposals aims to provide direct beneficiaries with financial support through the Forestry and Agricultural Producers Organization, towards developing agroforestry and production systems that integrate landscape and inclusive projects (gender),” the FAO wrote in a statement. 

The support is part of the 2022 work plan of the Forest and Farm Facility (FFF) - a program under which the FAO committed $340,000 for Togo.  

Winning proposals must focus on Togo, especially in the Maritime and Central regions, which have been approved under the FFF’s 2022 work plan, and the Savannah region which is a priority for the Togolese government. Projects proposed should not exceed 12 months, the FAO said.  

Applicants have until August 5, 2022, to submit their proposals.
