Published on 12/04/2024 | La rédaction


In the coastal south of Togo, the flood control sub-project for localities bordering Lac-Togo, initiated by the WACA ResIP-Togo coastal resilience program, is taking shape. At the end of last week, stakeholders met in Aného to validate the Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) report and the Resettlement Action Plan (RAP) for this sub-project.

This initiative is financed by the World Bank, with a budget of 2.8 billion FCFA for the urgent tranche, and aims to respond to a recurring problem of flooding in the maritime region. The works include dredging, the construction of structures, the development of basins and canals, as well as the construction of gutters and winnowed sills.

The work, scheduled to last 12 months, is due to start in October 2024, following compensation for those affected.Once completed, they should significantly improve the living environment of the local population by protecting the banks of Lac-Togo and opening up localities that are difficult to access during the rainy season. The promoters also hope that improved fishing and fish-trading activities will generate permanent jobs and increase product yields.
