Technical assistance for the energy sector support programme in Togo (PASET) — phase 1 (2017-2022)
Access to energy and especially to a reliable, affordable electricity service, is a condition for sustainable economic development and poverty reduction. The population's access to energy in Togo was limited to 30% in 2014. For the same year, the level of technical (on networks) and non-technical loss was around 18%. This project aims to help face these challenges. Its overall objective is to contribute to reducing poverty by fostering the achievement of the objectives of the Sustainable Energy for All initiative (SE4All). The specific objective is to improve the living conditions of Togo's populations by working towards improved access to modern, sustainable energy services and helping to improve the sector's institutional framework to facilitate future investments, including from the private sector.
The technical assistance to the PASET-1 programme is organised around two main pillars:
1) improvement of the institutional framework of Togo's electricity sector;
2) capacity building of the main energy actors.
Efficiency of the FLEGT licensing scheme and effectiveness of the legality assurance system assessed through the services of an independent auditor (2017-2020)
While the overall objective of the FLEGT Voluntary Partnership Agreement is to contribute to the strengthening and improvement of forest governance and sustainable natural resource management, and tackle climate change by reducing GHG emissions in Liberia, the specific objective of the Independent Auditor of the System (AIS) is to audit the Legality Verification System (LAS), identify gaps, assess the effectiveness of corrective measures and verify the use of licenses when entering the EU market.
The audit of the LAS must reassure operators and authorities that the FLEGT authorisations issued (result of the LAS) are in conformity with the commitments entered into under the VPA and give the FLEGT license to be issued by Liberia, the credibility on which the entire FLEGT system is based.

The objective of the technical assistance to the Department of Strategy and Statistics (DSS) of the Ministry of Agriculture and Maritime Fisheries is to support the promotion and development of the agricultural statistics system in Morocco. The project will enable the development and design of two systems for processing agricultural statistical data: (i) an operating system for the National Agricultural Register; (ii) an information system for accountancy data on agricultural holdings. It will also act as a communication channel for the EU’s AGRI 2 programme.
Technical assistance to support reforms to the project for the production of drinking water through desalination and renewable energy (2017-2018)
In the Republic of Djibouti, public water and electricity services are the prerogative of two public companies (ONEAD and EDD respectively). The critical situation of water resources for the capital led the EU to fund the PEPER project, whose main purpose is to produce drinking water through sea water desalination. Desalination is an energy intensive technology. A reform of the two institutions is necessary for the fulfilment of PEPER.
The general objective of the technical assistance provided by SOFRECO is to establish a review of the current situation of ONEAD and EDD (technical, strategic, organisational, accounting, financial and IT), and to support the measures endorsed by the Government in the overall framework of the reform of the management of public establishments and companies (EEP), in order to set up a stable institutional and regulatory framework for the water and energy sectors.
