Togo - Community Development Project : additional financing (Английский)

The objectives of the Community Development Project for Togo is to provide poor communities with improved basic socioeconomic infrastructures and income generating activities by financing at least 350 subprojects to be identified and implemented directly by communities. This additional financing is being provided in response to a significant escalation of food prices, especially of staple foods, that are at the base of the Togolese diet. This is increasing hardship in already poor communities and is exacerbating child malnutrition. The recent flooding in Southern Togo has worsened an already precarious situation. A World Bank policy note describing the responses to the food price crisis divides policy interventions into three broad categories: (i) interventions to ensure household food security by strengthening targeted safety nets; (ii) interventions to lower domestic food prices through short-run trade policy measures or administrative action; and (iii) interventions to enhance longer-term food supply. The additional financing will contribute to increase agricultural productivity (intervention iii), and support an emergency program providing lunches for children attending primary school, thus increasing their parents' available income (intervention i).
