AFD grants €14 mln to Lomé to better manage its waste

(Togo First) - The Lomé municipality just received €14 million, a grant from the French Development Agency (AFD), to improve its waste management. The financing is part of the third stage of the Lomé Urban Environment Project (PEUL III).

Related agreement was inked May 16 by Sani Yaya, Togo’s minister of economy and finance, Marc Vizy, France’s ambassador to Togo, and François Jacquier-Pélissier, president of AFD Togo.

67% of the grant will be used to improve environmental and social safety at the Agoé Nyivé landfill,” indicates Minister Yaya. “23% will be used to foster governance within the Lomé municipality and remaining 10% will focus on sports and development as well as help manage the project,” the official added.

He noted further that the facility will, beyond helping Lomé better manage its waste, help the capital improve revenues needed to finance public services.
