ITRA and AfricaRice discuss develop plans for research and demonstration

March 3, 2011

Wednesday March 2, Petra Schmitter and Sander Zwart visited ITRA in Lomé to discuss the plans for sawah development and research in Togo. In an earlier mission three sites were selected. It was decided to plan a mission in mid-March to re-visit these sites (together with two others) and analyze which ones are suitable for research and which ones for demonstration of sawah technology.

The importance to link the demonstration sites to development project was emphasized. Dr. Alimi outlined the current agricultural development strategies and projects from the Togolese government. Several projects are underway, such as PADAT (funded by IFAD), PASA (World Bank) and WAAPP. An inventory of ongoing rice development projects from various donors will be prepared by ITRA.
