Millenium Challenge Account: OMCA-Togo Prepares for Closure of ICT and Land Reform Projects

(Togo First) - Togo's Millennium Challenge Account Implementing Agency (OMCA-Togo) is preparing for the closure of the ICT and Land Reform Projects (LRAP), currently being deployed as part of the Threshold program. OMCA-Togo's Administrative and Financial Department organized a workshop to launch the program's closing process on Monday, June 11.

The workshop gathered heads of entities responsible for implementing the Threshold program from the Ministry of the Digital Economy and Digital Transformation and partner agencies and authorities in the ICT project. For the LRAP project, representatives from the Ministries of Urban Planning and Land Reform, Territorial Administration, Economy and Finance, Agriculture, and Rural Development were also present at OMCA-Togo.

The workshop aimed to present to the players involved in the program the broad outlines of their roles and responsibilities in drawing up the Program Closure Plan (PCP) and its implementation during and after the end of the Threshold program. This document aims to guarantee a smooth transition, maximize the program's impact, and ensure the sustainability of the results obtained.

Over the following six months, concerned parties will collaborate to validate the document which the MCC and the OMCA-Togo Board of Directors will approve.

The Threshold program has a budget of 20 billion FCFA ($35 million). At the end of September 2023, the ICT project was 71% complete, and the Land Reforms for Increased Agricultural Productivity (LRAP) project was 100% complete, with an overall financial execution rate of 21%, which has since improved.
