Togo: WAEMU has in the past 25 years invested more than CFA6 billion in agriculture

(Togo First) - In the last 25 years, the West African Economic and Monetary Union (WAEMU) injected more than six billion CFA in Togo’s agricultural sector. The figure was obtained from data released by the representative resident of the WAEMU commission, Assoukou Raymong Kripeu, and other data compiled by Togo First.

According to the commission’s representative, out of the sum mentioned, 3.6 billion was used to build grain harvest and storage warehouses in order to improve Togo’s food security, by securing agricultural output and seeds. An additional CFA62.5 million was provided to produce, certify and supply grain seeds; CFA1.1 billion for multipurpose hydraulic facilities; about 730 million to organize vaccination campaigns against anthrax; 525 million for the structuring of the rice and maize sectors; and 50 million for crop preservation.

Besides these, some part of the funds was used to dig four water boreholes and the commission currently works to set up a regional agricultural information system (SIAR) which is a platform on which the country’s agricultural data will be posted.
