Project General Description

The Togo Agro-Food Processing Zone Project (PTA-Togo) is a pilot project implemented as part of the Togo Agropoles Strategic Development Plan 2017-2030 and the Feed Africa Initiative 2016-2025. The aim of the project is to create conditions conducive to private investment, notably in the processing of agricultural products, the supply of inputs and marketing, in the Kara region. It has four components: (a) support policy, governance and incentive measures; (b) infrastructure for processing and accessing agricultural inputs and services; (c) capacity building for actors in priority agricultural chains; and (d) coordination, management, monitoring and evaluation. This pilot project will be implemented over a five-year period at a total pre-tax cost of about UA 45,066,070 (about CFAF 35.194 billion).

Project Objectives

The overall objective of the project is to promote inclusive agricultural growth that creates jobs and reduces imports thanks to incentive measures for private investment in key areas (rice, maize, soybean, sesame, broiler meat and cashew nuts). The specific objectives of the project are to: (i) facilitate private investments in key areas thanks to policy support, governance and incentive measures; (ii) promote the development of priority value chains through the establishment of infrastructure to support production, storage and processing; and (iii) build the capacities of stakeholders in priority agro-industrial areas.

Beneficiaries

The project will bring direct benefits to about 303,000 people in the Bassar, Doufelgou, Kéran, Bastar and Dankpen Prefectures, 51% of whom are women, and indirect benefits to the estimated 769,940 people of the Kara region.
