Sustainability through Climate Protection!

PROJECT TOGO shows how sustainability can be achieved. Te carbon ofset project creates an ecosystem, whose biocapacity serves the diversity and stability of ecological and social life in the medium and long term.

The migration to the cities is a major problem for rural development.Trough the utilization of CO2 capture PROJECT TOGO system- atically strengthens regional locations and cooperative structures and includes all stratas of the population.

To achieve this, PROJECT TOGO produces self-supporting added-value units: equipment for power generation, water supply and soil improvement; infrastructures for health and education; projects for sustainable farming and forestry, self-sufciency and market production. In that all these infuence, overlap and enrich each other, they connect supply and demand together onsite and thus initiate sustainable development in the best sense.

Projectdescription

Traditionally people of villages are cooking together.

PROJECT TOGO works together with the local people in all stages of the project - from the establishment of nurseries, the growing of native tree species and the creation of frebreaks and protective hedges through to the care, supervision and management of forest and arable farming land and up to the supplementary infrastructure measures in education, water, energy, roads and buildings.

With the involvement of civil society and its exemplary transpar- ency PROJECT TOGO‘s commitment goes far beyond the goals of pure carbon ofset projects: Project Togo is a carbon ofset project that strengthens the location in which it operates and provides people with long-term prospects.

Ownership instead of land grabbing

With the transfer of experience and expertise and the training and integration of people and communities in the region, PROJECT TOGO produces long-term local and regional independence. 

Natural Forest, Agroforest and Agriculture - Added value instead of monotony.

In the Agou Prefecture in the Plateaux region PROJECT TOGO is foresting an 14.500 ha (Phase I) and a further 5.500 ha in (Phase II) area of wasteland into natural and commercial timberland.

is is creating a new agroforestry structure that is not only enriching the area ecologically, but is also creating jobs for the people of the region. PROJECT TOGO works together with the local people in all stages of the project - from the establishment of nurseries, the growing of native tree species and the creation of rebreaks and protective hedges through to the care, supervision and management of forest and arable farming land and up to the supplementary infrastructure measures in education, water, energy, roads and buildings. 

Transparency

With the involvement of civil society and its exemplary transpar- ency PROJECT TOGO‘s commitment goes far beyond the goals of pure carbon oset projects: Project Togo is a carbon oset project that strengthens the location in which it operates and provides people with long-term prospects. 

PROJECT TOGO is struktured in the areas: 

including a focus on education and further education.

In all areas we are working together with scientists, universities and institutions from Germany. During the development of PROJECT TOGO we integrated directly the areas water, energy, health, education and social manners.

Sustainable economic activity

Strong community - the inhabitants of Fokpo are all working together despite of religion and gender

The centre of the project area will comprise a natural forest with a high biodiversity and regeneration capacity, which will remain free of economic exploitation as a refuge of ecological resilience. Tis natural forest will be surrounded by a commercial woodland in combination with land for horticulture and agriculture. In this way, PROJECT TOGO will provide efective protective areas for fora and fauna and strengthens soil fertility, regional water cycles and vegetation systems. 

Working together on the fire lane.

Instead of acquiring land for the project (land grabbing) PROJECT TOGO has successfully applied for the commercial exploitation rights to degraded wasteland. Te suitability of the areas as re- forestation areas for CO2 capture meets all the conditions required by the Gold Standard Foundation. As soon as the integrated upgrading of the sites is completed, PROJECT TOGO will return the exploitation rights to the national community (local owner- ship) and thus permit long-term regional sustainability. 

Sustainability

Jatropha is suitable for collecting and an extra income

As sustainability can only be achieved through the integration of nature, people and their social and economic conditions, PRO- JECT TOGO bases itself on ISA - an „Integrated Sustainability Approach“. It is not only natural resources that are created in the project area, but also life-serving structural and technological infrastructures as prerequisites for the cultural, social and sustain- able development of an area and the participation of all actors involved. An education system, health care and jobs are just as important as renewable energy, a fresh water supply and a strong agro-forestry economy.

PROJECT TOGO integrates all aspects of sustainability - people and communities, infrastructure and ecosystems - and thus achieves real, strong sustainability.
