Project to support the reinforcement of the resilience of populations through the promotion of agro-ecological practices in the Prefecture of Tchamba and in the Savanes region

The project to support the development of agro-sylvo-pastoral systems in the Prefecture of Tchamba executed by Inades-Formation Togo starts from the observation that agroecological practices are poorly developed in this zone which constitutes a pocket of cereal production in Togo leading Thus degrading cultivated land.

Given the increase in the population resulting in an increase in the need for cropland, farmers are clearing new ecosystems, sometimes forests, or even exploiting the same land over a number of years without rest in a production system dominated by cereals. This situation leads to the phenomenon of soil degradation of natural resources, particularly forests.

The project covers two (2) areas: the Tchamba prefecture and the Savanes region and will directly support 400 producers, 25% of whom are women

The implementation strategy for the project is based on a close partnership between Inades-Formation Togo and the Central Union of Central America (UROPC-C) in general and the 5 grain unions in particular.

Project to empower and strengthen the leadership of rural women through the promotion of agroecological practices in family farms in the savannah region of Togo

The activities of this project to empower and strengthen the leadership of rural women through the promotion of agro-ecological practices in family farms in the savannah region of Togo are part of the logical continuation of the agro-ecological intensification project Of agricultural production in the savannas of sustainable management of natural resources implemented between 2014-2016 by Inades-Formation Togo in partnership with Agronomie et Vétérinaires sans Frontières (AVSF).

The main objective of the project is to improve the living conditions of farming families in the Savannah region by improving the management of natural resources and enhancing food security.

In the context of climate change, this project is justified by the fact that women in the region in general and those who benefit from the project in particular, who are numerous in the agricultural sector, face low productivity and Yields on their farms.

The project covers four (4) intervention cantons in the prefectures of Tone and Tandjoare and directly affects 200 people, including at least 150 women organized in the market gardening activity and around the wooded lots.

Thus, Inades-Formation Togo intends to initiate a close partnership with the organizations of women producers of the zone through the Regional Union.

Project Partners for Inclusive Development

With the law on decentralization and local freedoms, Inades-Formation Togo has opted for the support of the cantons and municipalities in order to prepare the various actors to better play their role through the organization, structuring and accountability of the communities. It is therefore a question of supporting these communities in the local planning and the implementation of the chosen actions. The coaching process will help communities meet a number of challenges, including local governance, easy access to basic social services, improved incomes and a healthy environment.

The project is implemented to encourage the involvement of all categories of actors, and especially disabled people, in the management of local affairs. Indeed, it is noted that persons with disabilities (PHs) are generally not taken into account in cultural or economic promotion groups, development bodies (CVD, CCD, CDQ), in the design and implementation of socio-community infrastructures . This situation limits their access to the services provided to the populations and also their participation in the animation of community life or at public meetings.

Moreover, mothers of disabled children also suffer from the looks of their family members and the community in which they live (low regard, support of the child …).

The direct beneficiaries of the project are therefore persons with disabilities and / or their families, associations, CVD and CCD members, CDQs, GECs, community and religious leaders, socio-cultural and economic groups, Attitogon, Momé, Atchangbadè and Adéta headquarters.

The project covers the cantons of Attitogon, Momé, Atchangbadè and the municipality of Adéta. The aim is to work towards integrating the PHs into grassroots development committees and socio-cultural associations, and to promote their participation in activities in communities.

It started in 2016 and will end in 2019.
