WACA: Togo seeks $114 million for projects tackling coastal erosion and sea pollution

(Togo First) - In the framework of the West African Coastal Area Management Program - WACA, which is financed and implemented by the World Bank, Abidjan hosted yesterday the WACAmarketplace. 

This was a meeting where Senegal, Mauritania, Sao Tome, Côte d'Ivoire, Benin, and Togo gathered, to present to technical partners and potential backers, their respective projects on tackling coastal erosion and sea pollution.

For its projects, Lomé seeks around $114 million. They concern the coastal band going from Gbodjomey to Abdodrafo and the market area (in the capital).  

Let it be recalled that in 2017, coastal erosion cost $3.8 billion to Benin, Côte d'Ivoire, Senegal, and Togo. This represented about 5% of their GDP at the time.
