Project Description

The TOGO AGRO-FOOD PROCESSING PROJECT (PTA) will establish an Agropark in the Kara region- with the overall goal of the Project to contribute to reducing poverty in rural areas, reducing demand for food imports and promoting agro-industrial development to transform the national economy.
The project will ensure that targeted crops, livestock and fish products from the region will have ready access to market and the income of producers will be secured.

Agricultural productivity will be increased through:

  • world class operational management of the agro-industrial park,
  • modern and climate-smart production practices for large and small producers,
  • effective input distribution systems,
  • IT-based technical support to producers,
  • improved postharvest handling and secure contractual arrangements with output markets

Increased incomes of people in the Kara region will enable families, and particularly women, a better access to basic social services.
By creating on-farm and off-farm employment opportunities, the project will contribute to reducing migration to cities.
