Togo: Sandra Johnson asks for World Bank's IDA20 financing to be increased

(Togo First) - Togo wants its share of the IDA20 package raised to better achieve the structural transformation of its economy. Last Monday, November 20, Sandra Ablamba Johnson, Minister, Secretary General of the Presidency of the Republic, and Governor of the World Bank in Togo, asked for the increase. The Togolese official spoke during the launch of consultations in the framework of the elaboration of the new Country Partnership Framework 2023-2027 with the World Bank. 

For the Togolese economy to be structurally transformed, “concrete actions with strong impacts on the population must be posed.” That is Sandra Johnson’s opinion.  

Thus, when the two sides met on Monday, they defined the priorities of this new cooperation framework in line with Togo’s 2025 government roadmap, taking into account the current global, health, security, and economic crises.


For her part, Coralie Gevers, World Bank Director of Operations for Benin, Côte d'Ivoire, Guinea and Togo, reassured that the next country partnership framework would be aligned with the priorities agreed with the Togolese authorities. "The mid-term review of the IDA20 process could enable Togo to get more resources to deal with current crises," she said.

The IDA20 is the 20th replenishment of the resources of the International Development Association (IDA), to support the recovery efforts of countries affected by the Covid-19 pandemic and their transition to a green, resilient and inclusive development.
