PIDU to carry out feasibility studies for investments in Dapaong

(Togo First) - The government of Togo launched a call for expression of interest to conduct feasibility studies for investment operations in Dapaong. Interested firms have until May 4, 2021, to submit their bid. 

In effect, the studies will help determine if the area is fit for the various activities the PIDU (Project d’Infrastructures et de Développement Urbain) plans to develop there. In addition, the firm hired will assess institutional and organizational aspects of the project, related environmental and socio-cultural challenges, as well as issues surrounding communities face and ways to tackle them; all these with the aim of producing concrete results and serving these communities. 

A few months ago, it should be recalled, Koffi Tsolenyanu, minister of Urbanism, Housing, and Land Reform was in Dapaong. At the time, the official had declared that “it’s not that the budget reserved for infrastructure in Dapaong has been canceled but the fact is that selected sites are not appropriate.” Tsolenyanu emphasized that future projects could have negative social and environmental impacts on populations. 

In fine, the scheduled feasibility studies should enable the government and its backer for the project - the World Bank - to establish appropriate conditions to deploy the PIDU in Dapaong and better target investments to be made.
