Learning from NES Togo. Good Practices from a Multi-Stakeholder Platform

Good practices in NES Togo are strictly connected with the genesis of the NES itself. Firstly, the process of setting up a multi-stakeholder platform was strongly shaped by an influential and experienced resource person, hired as a consultant in the initial phase of the NES to support the production of guidelines for stakeholders’ cooperation and a Strategy. This person was an academic, who later on became the director of the drafting team of Togo’s Land Code. Thanks to his knowledge, connections and research, NES Togo could usefully draw inspiration from other NES experiences - for example in Madagascar - and land reforms, such as those in Niger, Benin and Burkina Faso.
