Innovation challenges : XOF120 million to be shared by 9 innovative project carriers

(Togo First) - In Togo, nine carriers of innovative projects in the waste recovery sector, the use of local materials in housing and transport construction as well as in the issuance of civil status certificates will have the opportunity to obtain a total of US$240,000 (XOF120 million), put into play by the UNDP country office.
In detail, those who stand out from the crowd for their innovative solutions in building sustainable cities will each receive an envelope of US$20,000, while those who carry projects to improve the issuance of civil status documents will each receive US$30,000.

The initiative to launch this competition finds its justification in the perceived need to promote local know-hows and good practices, says Aliou Dia, UNDP Resident Representative in Togo. It shows a shift in the UN institution's development approach in Togo.  

Through this competition, UNDP is supporting the Togolese authorities, who are engaged in a race against time to achieve the sustainable development goals in the sectors covered by the competition.
