UN systems representatives from Togo and Benin meet in Lomé to discuss common trans-border issues

(Togo First) - Actors of the UN systems, in Togo and Benin, are holding a joint retreat in Lomé today, Sept. 16, 2019. Through this meeting, a first of its kind, the institution aims at boosting support to its government partners in both countries, amid trans-border challenges, knowingly security and emigration, which they face. 

The retreat, according to the UN system’s representative in Togo, Damien Mama, is an occasion to “better understand challenges, share positive experiences and agree on a series of actions to better support States responsible for tackling these challenges.”

In detail, actors present will explore collaboration opportunities, assess common challenges, identify joint measures and projects to undertake, and also share good practices. All these are to ultimately reinforce the implementation of the 2030 agenda, relative to key development priorities in Togo and Benin. 

The meeting was opened by Togo’s minister of foreign affairs, Robert Dussey. On this occasion, the diplomat emphasized on the fact that actions taken should be responsible and ethical, in order to better tackle trans-border challenges.
