Togo: Government launches $1.2bn strategic plan

Issue 361 - 18 Jan 2018 | 2 minute read

The government has begun implementing a five-year strategic action plan for the electricity sector for the period 2018-2022. The CFA668bn ($1.2bn) plan aims to treble Togo’s generation capacity of 161MW. Implementation should enable the government to meet targets in its Accelerated Growth and Employment Strategy to increase electricity access from 36% in 2016 to 50% in 2020 and 60% in 2022, though rapid population growth means these targets are challenging. Togo’s population is expected to grow from 7.6m in 2016 to 10m in 2030.
