By Inès Magoum

The French Development Agency (AFD) is allocating 6.5 billion CFA francs (around 10 million euros) to the government of the Republic of Togo. The funding is intended for the construction of 950 human-powered water pumps in the Savanes and Kara regions.

The grant agreement was signed on 2 December 2022 in Lomé, the capital of Togo. The financing of 6.5 billion CFA francs (almost 10 million euros) granted by the French Development Agency (AFD) will enable the construction of 950 boreholes in the Savanes and Kara regions in the northern part of the country. The future installations will be equipped with human-powered pumps.

According to the Togolese Ministry of Water and Village Hydraulics, these works will constitute the third phase of the project to improve sanitary conditions in schools and rural areas in the Savanes and Kara regions (Passco 3), which will be launched soon in Togo.
