Togo: Regional chambers of agriculture amended

(Togo First) - Togo’s government recently amended its regional chambers of agriculture, local institutions in charge of representing and promoting this sector.

For instance, every member of the regional chamber will be paying a membership fee. Also, the Bureau national des chambres régionales d’agriculture (BN-CRA), which oversees all the chambers, is now the Permanent Council of Agricultural Chambers in Togo (CPCAT).

The decision, adopted by decree in a council of ministers held last Wednesday, aims “at strengthening the credibility of the representative chambers as well as the legitimacy of procedures in decision-taking institutions.”

It also aims at making them “more functional and efficient,” and to help agricultural actors better understand their purpose.

Let’s recall that the regional chambers of agriculture were established since 1997 in Togo. They represent villages and townships near public authorities, while tackling agricultural issues.
