Togo: UNDP’s new resident representative is in!

(Togo First) - Binta Sanneh is the UNDP’s new resident representative in Togo. She officially stepped into the position on May 2, 2023, in Lomé. Sanneh took over from Aliou Dia. 

The new representative has been working at the UN organization for almost 15 years. She was in Guinea Bissau, Burundi, and Chad. 

An MBA holder, Binta Sanneh is from Gambia. An expert in international development, she is committed to gender equality, inclusion, and environmental sustainability. 

In Togo, she will monitor all of the UNDP’s activities and projects, making sure the organization efficiently contributes to Togo’s development goals. 

In recent years, the UNDP has increased its investments in Togo, especially in the following areas: education, youth employment, environment, digitalization, inclusion, gender, and community development. 

Now, Bintah Sanneh will reinforce the cooperation between the organization of the government, with a focus on inclusive economic growth, creating jobs for the youth, and reducing poverty. She is also expected to address the issue of strengthening the ties between the UNDP, civil society, and the private sector. 

A few months before the Gambian was appointed, Togo and the UN System signed a new cooperation framework agreement for the 2023-2027 period. In line with this agreement, Togo should receive about CFA150 billion to support its growth.
