Project General Description

This project is an important contribution to the implementation of Togo's National Development Plan, which is the benchmark for all Government actions aimed at promoting the country's economic and social development. This is a grant from the African Water Facility (AWF) Special Fund in an amount not exceeding EUR 1,250,000 for the Togolese Republic. Its implementation will make it possible for ten (10) urban centres, distributed in four of the five regions of Togo, to have a programme and a favourable framework for investment in the area of sanitation with the option of reclaiming its by-products to strengthen food security, employment opportunities and, in sum, economic and social welfare. The project includes both a catalytic component and an investment project preparation component. It covers two of the AWF's four strategic priorities, namely: (i) project preparation and promotion; and (ii) catalytic investments. Activities are organised around three components, namely: (1) Improvement of the sanitation value chain in Sokodé and its environs; (2) Preparation of SMPs and investment projects with a view to scaling up the TTS to 9 urban centres; (3) Project management. The expected duration of the Project is 24 months from the date of effectiveness of the Grant Agreement.

Project Objectives

The objective of the project is to improve the living conditions of the urban communities of Togo. The specific objectives are to: (i) provide effective sanitation services; and (ii) prepare the investments needed to provide citywide inclusive waste management services.


The direct beneficiaries of the project are : (i) The population of Sokodé and the neighbouring towns located within a radius of 100 km, including Kara, representing approximately 1,050,000 inhabitants; (ii) The women and men of FéCAQSo who will benefit from capacity building in terms of equipment, administrative and financial management and leadership; (iii) The communities in the villages near the faecal sludge treatment plant which will be supplied with drinking water from the water tower; (iv) Vegetable farmers who will use the by-products of sanitation as manure for their farmland; (v) The 9 urban centres that will be provided with SMPs and investment projects for priority actions: Dzrekpo Centre in the Maritime Region; Kati, Avetonou, and Zogbegan in the Plateaux Region; Sokodé (consolidate the existing infrastructure)in the Central Region; Atchangbade and Sara in Kara Region; and Sagbibou, Biagou & Batebogou and Boade centre in the Savanes Region. These cities have a total estimated population of 1,361,202 in 2019, of which 52% are women. The indirect beneficiaries of the project are the private sector stakeholders active in sanitation, civil society, community-based micro-enterprises, as well as urban farmers.
