Togo plans to establish 500 Eco-villages for XOF7 billion

(Togo First) - Togo plans on creating 500 new eco-villages for XOF7 billion. The project follows a successful pilot stage in Donomadé, a village of the Yoto prefecture, 104 km south east of Lomé.

Communities created under this project will have eco-friendly socio-communal infrastructures (schools, health centers) and their people will have access to social services.

The pilot stage of this project which is backed by the PNUD led to the construction of three boreholes, a 10KVA mini solar plant. In addition, Donomadé received a multi-purpose power platform that feeds a flour and cassava mill in the village. The facility was established through collaboration between the ministries of environment and grassroots development.

In regards to farming, the village now grows soybeans and pepper as a result of the project’s implementation. Also, veterinary products and high-performance broodstock have been given to the village’s breeders.

Besides Donomadé, the pilot covered Andokpomey, a villague located in Avé prefecture.
