Project Details


The CBIT project in Togo will enable the establishment of an efficient and comprehensive climate related information system as well as build technical and human capacities. It will also enable Togo to strengthen the skills of its stakeholders through trainings on inventory modules, but also on the monitoring of the actions implemented in the context of the struggle against climate change. Strengthening the capacities of CBIT institutions and staff will lead to the generation of harmonized data at the national level, and significantly improve the quality of the data. In turn, the production of quality data will improve the quality of decision-making and especially policy making.
