Togo gets CFA12 billion from Kuwait Fund KFAED, for a drinking water project in Kara

(Togo First) - The Kuwait Fund for Arab Economic Development (KFAED) just provided Togo a CFA12 billion financing for its drinking water supply project in Kara (414km north of Lomé) and its surroundings.

The related signing ceremony took place on January 31, 2019, in the presence of Sani Yaya, Togo’s minister of economy and finances, and Nedhal A. Al-Olayan, Managing Director of KFAED.

The concerned project aims at meeting the needs of the people of Kara and improving their living standards. In the long run, it should help mobilize 10,000 m3/day from close sources and bring daily supply capacity from 7,500 m3 to 17,500 m3, the minister indicated.

The project should thus have a “positive impact on water supply level”, which currently stands at 47%. In effect, “80% of the population in the project area should have access to drinking water by 2030”.

The minister then recalled that the project is part of “a set of key programs initiated by the government under its national development plan (PND)”.
