Sectorial Environmental and Social Assessment and Environmental and Social Audit of the SNPT (2017-2018)
Since 2005, the government of Togo has been aiming to implement a diversification policy in the mining sector, a major focus of economic development in the country. Over the last two decades, Togo's mining industry has mainly concentrated on unconsolidated phosphate for the production of fertilizer and phosphoric acid; SNPT is the key actor in this.
This study has two components:
- A sectorial environmental and social assessment that aims to integrate analytical and participatory approaches into strategic decisions, and to include environmental and social considerations in sectorial policies, plans and programmes.
- An in-depth examination of the environmental and social audit of the SNPT to highlight the strengths and weaknesses of the SNPT-funded audit, and propose recommendations to bring it into compliance with best international practices and relevant World Bank requirements.

Technical assistance for the Ministry of Energy as part of institutional support and strengthening the capacities of parties involved in the energy sector in Benin (RECASEB) (2017-2021)
The specific objective of the RECASEB programme is to improve the institutional framework of the energy sector in Benin at regulatory and organisational level and to support/encourage reforms. These reforms must make the sector more attractive for public and private investment, including new production units, particularly via renewable sources and the extension of the network for greater access to electricity services throughout the country, particularly in rural areas.
The components of the RECASEB programme are organised around three main pillars:
- capacity building of the energy sector;
- the development of management, supervisory and decision-making tools for the steering and implementation of the strategic thrusts;
- information and documentation to the parties of the sector and the general public (civil society, consumers, etc.).
