Project for the protection and conservation of plant and animal biodiversity

This project is especially for farmers organisations as it aims to strengthen and develop both their technical and organisational skills.

An initiative of NGO ALED-TOGO

Overview of the project

Togo has vast arable land, a favorable climate for agriculture and a young a hardworking population. With very high unemployment rates, Togo is facing the risk of food insecurity. With this in mind, Togo has benefited, the past 5 years, of large investments from governments and its partners in order to fight against unemployment, poverty and to ensure food security via diverse strategies and programmes.

Although efforts were put in place, a lot is left to be done especially by non-state organisations. This project consists in professionally, scientifically and more technically organising farmers, and mostly farmers organisations via awareness workshops, advice support, recycling, trainings etc…

Three types of trees will be planted in large numbers all over the target area of the project after all concerned actors are aware of the situation.This actions includes three big phases:

  • Facilitation of agriculture
  • Capacity building and raising awareness of agropastoral organizations
  • Action monitoring, evaluation and implementation
