Project details

Although the Togolese State and the various partners are devoting great efforts to improve the supply of portable water, access to clean water remains a major problem in the Savanes Central and Northern Plateau regions. These regions are also heavily exposed to the effects of climate change, in the form of an increase in droughts and unpredictable rainfall patterns. Women are forced to walk about 2 km on average to reach the nearest source of drinking water or use polluted water from the dam Due to these challenges, three villages were identified, which are in need of adequate access to drinking water. These villages are Namare Puob n kpaad (NAKI OUEST SAVANES), Tchokoroko (CENTRALE) and Aloba (PLATEAU NORD)

The project is supported and coordinated by NSCT, a limited company, is 51 % owned by the Singaporean OLAM International Group, 25 % by the National Federation of Cotton Producers Group and 24 % by the Togolese State.
