Togo adopts 5-year strategy to deal with corruption

(Togo First) - In line with efforts to tackle corruption, Togo recently adopted a five-year strategic plan. Drawn up by the High Authority for the Prevention and Fight against Corruption and Related Offences (HAPLUCIA), the plan was presented on October 13, 2022, in Lomé to the country's various socio-economic actors and technical and financial partners.

The new strategy has three major axes. The first aims to strengthen the legal and institutional framework for the fight against corruption in the country. The second aims to mobilize all actors and sectors of intervention in this fight, and the third focuses on steps that will be taken to bolster integrity, transparency, and quality in public administration. 

With this document, Togo is implementing the United Nations Convention against Corruption, which it ratified in July 2005. 

According to the Togolese Minister of Human Rights and Relations with Public Institutions, “Togo has undertaken a series of reforms from a normative, institutional, but also a processual point of view to fight against corruption”. “This document allows us today to have an orderly, coordinated, and standardized framework," he added while urging concerned actors to understand the tool so that bribery is dealt with in Togo.
