Togo: Key actors of mining industry meet again in Lomé, to discuss the sector’s environmental and social impact

(Togo First) - Today, Aug 20, the coordinating team in charge of Togo’s mining development and governance project (PDGM) has launched a second meeting to assess the social and environmental impact of mining in Togo. The first meeting was held in March, this year.

The gathering aims to promote better practices in the sector, so as to reduce its negative impacts on populations and the environment.

Marcel Sogle, Head of Mining and Geology, indicated that the project also aims at making extractive industries more profitable and transparent. “Under this project’s implementation, an environmental and social impact assessment (ESIA) of the sector is planned. This is to raise the attention of all parties concerned on social and environmental issues related to the growth of Togo’s mining sector,” Sogle said.  

The World Bank, it should be recalled, disbursed $15 million via its IDA fund to support the PDGM.
