World Bank to provide seven West African nations, including Togo, $379 million to improve their statistics systems

(Togo First) - Seven West African countries, including Togo, will get $379 million from the World Bank, in the form of loans and grants, to reinforce and harmonize their statistics system. 

The support was approved by the World Bank’s board on March 26, 2020. It aligns with a regional project that mainly aims at raising demand for quality data, as well as boost capacities of the respective national statistics offices of benefiting nations. 

In detail, the funds should, among others, finance the harmonization of methods of the ECOWAS Commission; the increase of key socio-economic data (including that on demographics and poverty), optimization of administrative statistics, reinforcing of data sharing capacities, and institutional reforms. They should also help modernize and improve physical infrastructures.

Besides Togo, other beneficiaries include Burkina Faso, Cape Verde, Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana, Liberia, and Sierra Leone.
