Technical assistance for the regulatory review, monitoring of inspections, and integration of systems to monitor the compliance and performance of mining operators in Togo (2019-2021)
When licences are granted to mining companies, monitoring and regular controls must be carried out on-site to reduce the adverse effects of mining activities that are behind numerous environmental, social and economic impacts. The structural capacity constraints of the Togolese mining administration, and often the lack of resources, continue to hinder the regular control and more efficient supervision of mining operations. The lack of regular control most often results in mining activities’ non-compliance with the regulations, which in turn do not always take account of the reality on the ground. This has multiple social and environmental implications and leads to a loss of income for the State in terms of fees and other taxes.
To tackle this problem, regular visits need to be made to the different mines and quarries.
The objective of this technical assistance is therefore to support the DGMG carrying out mining control operations and environmental inspections on a quarterly basis.
