The Secretariat, together with 34 CSOs representives organized a workshop to give Togolese civil society the tools and means to seize and embrace their role in 2030 Agenda implementation and the role of New Deal framework therein. The participants reviewed the National Development Plan and understood its coherence with the principles of the ND and the SDGs achievement in Togo. CS members deepened their knowledge of CSPPS and the role CS must play in SDG implementation thanks to peer-to-peer learning provided by the DRC CSPPS Focal Point.
