Togo’s Ministry of Urban Planning, Housing and Land Reform has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Morocco’s Douja Promotion Groupe Addoha to build 1,000 collective housing units in Lomé under a public-private partnership.

The state will provide the land, while the developer will bear all the construction costs. The MoU was signed on 15 June.

According to the agreement, the company must provide the initial descriptions of the project within five months.

The ministry is tasked with building 20,000 affordable housing units under the government’s 2020-25 roadmap and has sought financial support from the World Bank, Shelter Africa and the African Development Bank.

In July, it launched a tender for an individual consultant to prepare a resettlement action plan for a 1,177-hectare site in Kpomé where 20,000 affordable units are planned to be built. The deadline for submitting bids is 25 July.

The Lomé Housing Renewal Project aims to build decent collective housing on underoccupied land in urban and semi-urban areas in order to reduce the housing supply gap and limit urban sprawl.

Togo’s housing deficit was estimated at 500,000 units in 2020, with 15,000 additional units needed each year.
