In Togo, the government is preparing a roadmap for drinking water supply in the greater Lomé area. The objective of the Togolese authorities is to increase drinking water coverage in this part of the country to 80% by 2025.

Not to leave any corner of Greater Lomé without drinking water. This is the goal of the Togolese government, which is preparing a master plan for drinking water supply. This strategic plan will serve as a guide in the implementation of drinking water supply projects for the Togolese ministry in charge of water and operators in the sector, notably the Société du patrimoine eau et assainissement en milieu urbain et semi-urbain (SP-EAU) and the Société Togolaise des Eaux (TdE).

The project to draw up a master plan for the supply of drinking water to Lomé was unveiled on September 22nd, 2021, during the Togolese government’s Council of Ministers. The roadmap will guide the Togolese government’s actions in terms of drinking water for the next thirty years. The authorities hope to achieve 80% drinking water coverage in the greater Lomé area by 2025.

A master plan is being unveiled while several initiatives are underway in this region of Togo. These include the “AEP-Lomé” project which benefits the councils of Golfe 2, 5, and 6, as well as Agoè nyivé 1, Agoè nyivé 2, 3, 4 and 5. The project started in August 2021 with the construction of a 1,300 m3 water tower in the Golfe 7 council.
