TAAT Cassava Compact: Supporting the Togolese Government Initiative on cassava
10 July 2019
The Togolese government therefore launched a Presidential Initiative on Cassava to achieve self-sufficiency in food production, improved livelihoods, and job creation, and promote cassava as a foreign exchange earner.
The development of the cassava subsector in Togo is a key component of a national effort at diversifying the Togolese economy to generate employment, contribute to food security, and sustain incomes for the populace. To achieve these, the government identified IITA, the African Development Bank (AfDB), and the Cassava Compact of the Technologies for African Agricultural Transformation (TAAT) as integral partners in achieving the objectives of the Presidential Initiative.
