DES TOILETTES POUR TOUS A SOKODE PAR LA VALORISATION DES BOUES DE VIDANGE ET LE MICROCREDIT

ORIGINE DU PROJET: Le sous-secteur de l’assainissement au Togo a été négativement impacté par la suspen-sion de la coopération au développement, consécutive aux troubles socio-politiques des an-nées 1990 à 2005. L’accès des ménages aux toilettes a ainsi régressé de 37 % en 1990 à 34,9 % en 2010 (MICS, 2010). La Région centrale, dont la capitale administrative est Sokodé, s’est signalée par un taux de couverture plus faible (26,1 %), et des taux de prévalence de maladies d’origine hydrique des plus élevés.
