Togo: Agricultural Sector Support Project (PASA) currently under review

(Togo First) - Launched in 2011, the Agricultural Sector Support Project (PASA) is under assessment. The related mission was initiated June 3, 2019, in Lomé.

The current mission, the thirteenth since the project was launched, is undertaken by the Togolese government and the World Bank which backs it. The session focuses mainly on the level of execution of major components of PASA’s additional financing, and recommendations. Also, the mission’s participants look at progress made, results, performance indicators as well as execution level of the 2019 work plan and annual budget.

Moreover, field visits are planned in its framework, in order to interact with the various partners and beneficiaries of the project which is valued at more than XOF26 billion and financed by the Bretton Woods institution.

Let’s recall that between 2011 and 2017, PASA helped increase Togo’s animal production. In detail, in 2017 the country produced 475,000 cattle (against 300,000 in 2011), 4.2 million goats and sheep (1.5 million in 2011). As for poultry, 14.5 million chickens were produced, against 8 million in 2011.
