Lomé hosts four-day workshop on conditions to access GEF’s funding

(Togo First) - Yesterday, a four-day workshop focusing on tackling global warming and the Global Environment Facility’s (GEF) new policies and strategies was initiated in Lomé. Eight coastal countries are represented at the event which also aims at regrouping actors engaged in the environment sector and mobilize resources for environmental protection.

The workshop, it should be emphasized, takes place as environmental issues are worsening in the Gulf of Guinea region.

Indeed, according to World Bank, in 2017, environmental degradation (flooding, coastal erosion, air-water pollution) cost Togo $310 million. Coastal erosion alone accounted for $213 million thus 4.4% of Togo’s GDP that year.
