Project Description
The development objective of the Economic Governance Project for Togo is to improve public investment management, domestic revenue mobilization (DRM) and public accountability, and monitoring mechanisms for better service delivery in priority sectors. The project comprises of four components. The first component, management of public investments and public private partnerships aims to improve the effectiveness of public investment management (PIM) in Togo to support the realization of the ambitious objectives of the national development plan 2018-2022 and Togo vision 2030. It consists of following sub-components: (i) enhancing planning of public investments including public-private partnerships; (ii) ensuring selection and budgeting of high quality public investments; and (iii) enhancing the implementation of public investments. The second component, supporting domestic resource mobilization seeks to support DRM by strengthening tax policy and its implementation. It consists of following sub-components: (i) strengthening capacity for tax policy; (ii) broadening tax base through improvements in tax administration; and (iii) enhancing taxpayer services to promote voluntary compliance. The third component, increasing public accountability and citizen engagement aims to increase public accountability and citizen engagement in Togo by strengthening formal public accountability mechanisms, citizen engagement in the budget preparation and execution processes, and citizen feedback on the quality and accessibility of public services in three priority subsectors (primary education, maternal and child health, and urban water supply). It consists of following sub-components: (i) strengthening capacity of formal oversight and accountability institutions; (ii) strengthening civil society engagement in the budget process; and (iii) citizen engagement in priority sectors.
