Strengthening National and Decentralized Management for Global Environmental Benefits in Togo

Introduction

The project titled “Strengthening National and Decentralized Management for Global Environmental Benefits in Togo” aims to strengthen capacities at the systemic, organizational, and individual levels of the government. These in turn will reinforce Togo's efforts to mainstream environmental priorities into sectoral policies and apply sound environmental management practices.  The expected outcome of the project is that Togo will be able to catalyze effective and efficient implementation of international environmental conventions.

Key Results and Outputs

The project has two main components with the following associated outcomes –

  1. Strengthen the national institutional framework for environmental management through creation of tools for the National Commission for Sustainable Development (CNDD) to effectively coordinate the implementation of global environment convention articles (Outcome 1.1); collection of data, knowledge, tools and human resources for the National Agency for Environmental Management (ANGE) to effectively implement the global environment Convention articles lying within its mandate (Outcome 1.2); capacity building of the National Environmental Fund (FNE) to mobilize and allocate resources (Outcome 1.3) and; capacity building of the National Committees for the global conventions to effectively oversee the achievement of the Convention’s obligations, and to ensure coordination and synergies (Outcome 1.4).
  2. Decentralization of planning and management to implement the global environment conventions including formulation of a modified decentralization methodology, revised databases, guidelines, monitoring system and local plans among others. This will first be piloted and then replicated across the country to support adaptation and conservation activities.
