Togo's National Spatial Planning Scheme Takes Shape

(Togo First) - Togo's National Spatial Planning Scheme (SNAT) is nearing completion, just over a year after the process began. A series of workshops to validate the deliverables kicked off on June 10 in Lomé, bringing together stakeholders from various sectors to finalize the tool.

For five days, experts will work with stakeholders to gather final recommendations and opinions, before reaching the final draft. The aim is to create a reference framework that prefigures the Togo of tomorrow, advocating inclusion and coherence in sectoral policies and strategies.

"The SNAT’s elaboration stems from our vision, our ambition, and our will to leave nothing and nobody behind, taking a methodological approach," said Béguédouwé Paneto, representing the Secretary General of the Presidency of the Republic, Sandra Johnson, at the opening of the workshops.

Once adopted, the national land-use planning scheme will serve as a referential decision-making tool for the Togolese executive, aiming to improve the coherence and synergy of sectoral policies and strategies for harmonious, balanced, and sustainable management of the national space.

"We have set ourselves an ambition for the next 20 years, and our work will aim to define an expected image of the Togolese territory by 2045," explained Yendoubé Demakou, Director of Spatial Orientation of the Territory.
