Togo: Government starts drawing up its national land use strategy

(Togo First) - Togo will soon have a National Land Use Strategy (SNAT). Last Tuesday, Feb 28, Prime Minister Tomegah-Dogbe kicked off its elaboration in Lomé. 

The SNAT will help map out the country’s disadvantaged areas and enable the government to invest in their development, matching their realities and needs.

The plan will also foster the intensification of social programs across the country. Such programs include the Social Safety Net and Basic Service (FSB) project, which is being extended to the Greater Lomé area, and the school canteen project, which should also be extended to other parts of the country.

"Thanks to the SNAT, we will be able to tackle concrete issues such as refining school and health maps, improving road infrastructure coverage, and facilitating the development of productive activities by exploiting the potential of each region," the Prime Minister said.

The SNAT’s elaboration aligns with the government’s ambition to bolster decentralization and improve its land use planning strategy, in connection with the National Land Use Planning Policy (PONAT).
