Through a XOF6bn project, mangrove ecosystems will be reinforced in seven West African countries, Togo included

(Togo First) - Seven West African countries (Senegal, Gambia, Guinea Conakry, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Ghana, Benin, and Togo) will benefit from a XOF6 billion project to reinforce mangrove ecosystems. According to Agence de Presse Sénégalaise which disclosed the information, the regional project was launched at the end of last week by the EU representation in Senegal. 

This is a 4-year project that will be executed by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and Wetlands International, an NGO that restores humid zones. These two actors will support civil society organizations engaged in the preservation of mangroves (especially in relation to the green economy and participative governance) in the seven above-mentioned countries. 

The European Union is fully committed to fostering the fight against climate change on all fronts, said Irène Mingasson, EU ambassador in Senegal. 

The new project was launched during the European week of climate diplomacy. In Togo, the event was marked by the provision of a XOF20 million financing to Africa Global Recycling for its "Moi jeu tri project".
