Togo : Project to digitalize land titles completed

(Togo First) - In Togo, almost all land titles have been digitalized, with only one percent left. The remaining titles are those that date back to German colonization which are yet to be found. This was revealed in the latest report on progress made with structural reforms agreed with IMF, under its extended credit facility (ECF).

At the end of 2018, 95% of the titles had been digitalized (43,880 titles out of 46,183).

This project is part of many to improve Togo’s land sector. Related works include attending to 500 cases, mostly land-related, pending at the Supreme Court ; new laws regulating transfers of land to foreigners ; or the recently introduced measures forcing those owning private agricultural lands in rural areas to valorize them, in order to avoid speculation.
