The main objective of Lomé-Ouagadougou road and transport facilitation project is, in addition to improving the condition of the road and travel, to facilitate regional integration between Burkina Faso and Togo, was well as within the WAEMU/ECOWAS zone. It connects land-locked Burkina Faso, Mali, and Niger with the port of Lomé. The project mainly concerns the rehabilitation of about 300 km of road sections which are currently in bad condition, between the two capitals, and key transport facilitation measures along the Lomé-Ouagadougou corridor.

The TA grant from the EU-AITF will cover technical assistance to strengthen the existing project management capacity in both the Burkina Faso and Togo sides for the implementation of this very strategic regional project.
