It is the fruit of a collaboration with the U.S. Togo’s Minister of Security and Civil Protection, Calixte Batossie Madjoulba, launched the project alongside Alan S. Dohrmann, Major General of the North Dakota National Guard (U.S.). 

The upcoming facility will span 600 square meters, have four compartments, and will centralize emergency and disaster management. 

Simbo Aklesso, Chief Police Commissioner and Head of NEOC, explained that the complex will enhance the real-time collection and processing of data, thus allowing Togolese administrative and political authorities to make decisions more efficiently. He also added that the center would bring together “all stakeholders involved in managing an emergency gather to coordinate field interventions”.

The project is part of Togo’s efforts to be more resilient to climate change and other emergencies. It should be completed within six months.
