Togo: PNUD grants $286,000 to nine civil society organizations to preserve the environment and fight climate change

(Togo First) - The PNUD has granted $286,000 to nine Togolese civil society organizations (CSO) to protect the environment and fight climate change. The related agreement was signed yesterday in Lomé, by Aliou Dia, Resident-Coordinator for PNUD Togo, and the heads of the nine organizations, in the presence of Togo’s minister of environment and forest resources. Koffi Dimizou. 

The monies were given as part of the Global Environment Fund’s microfinance program. The latter, which is carried out by the PNUD, aims at mitigating environmental threats by developing community projects. 

In this regard, the PNUD provides technical and financial support to civil society organizations. Its goal is to back community projects that preserve natural resources and make poor and vulnerable populations more resilient to climate change and environmental degradation.
