Togo: Kick-off of the project “Technical Assistance to the West African Development Bank”
The West African Development Bank (BOAD) is the common development finance institution of the member countries of the West African Monetary Union (WAMU). The objective of the BOAD is to promote the development of the WAMU Member States and to contribute to the achievement of the economic integration in West Africa. Last week, a backstopping team of B&S Europe was in Lomé, Togo (where the BOAD headquarters are located) for the kick-off of an EU-funded project to support the institution.
The Technical Assistance is aiming the strengthening of institutional and operational capacities of the BOAD to ensure rigorous and effective management of development and regional integration programs. Specifically, the project should support the BOAD to be eligible for indirect management of Union funding European Union.
Representatives of the BOAD of different directorates welcomed this week B&S Europe representatives and the project is now ready to start!
