The Alliance Nationale des Consommateurs et de l'Environnement (ANCE-TOGO) is at the heart of all public policies relating to transparency, the fight against corruption, the fight against money laundering and the promotion of the integrity of the public service in Togo and West Africa.
In Togo, for more than twenty years, we have contributed to building the capacity of stakeholders (public sector, private sector and civil society); we have contributed to several reforms on transparency of public procurement, the fight against corruption, the strengthening of regulatory bodies, .....
We have also contributed to reviews of several policies, namely money laundering policies, public procurement policies, anti-corruption policies, etc.
We are representing civil society organisations on a number of steering committees uof public programmes funded by various donors or member of expert groups set up by the State, including the National Group of Experts in charge of the self-assessment of the implementation of the United Nations Convention against Corruption (February 2021 to June 2022); the National Group of Experts in charge of the assessment of the national public procurement system (April to December 2019); the National Group of Experts responsible for evaluating the national system for combating money laundering and the financing of terrorism (March to September 2020); the Committee for the self-assessment of the anti-money laundering and anti-terrorism mechanism in non-profit organisations in Togo (April-May, 2020). We also represent Togolese civil society on the steering committees of the Economic Governance Support Project (PAGE), the Governance and Private Sector Development Support Project (PAGDSP), etc.
Our leadership in this area has gradually spread to West Africa. Indeed, ANCE has assessed the implementation of the ECOWAS Protocol on the fight against corruption in the fifteen member countries and has made recommendations to advance this anti-bribery fight. Since March 2023, we have been coordinating the West Africa Hub of the "Ending Impunity for Corruption by Strengthening Accountability (SICEA)" Project, implemented in four (04) countries, namely Ghana, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Togo, with financial support from the Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor (DRL) of the United States Department of State and Transparency International.
Despite these major successes, our ambitions remain high. To go even further in promoting transparency, integrity and the fight against corruption in Africa and in Togo.
We thanks all our technical and financial partners who have supported us since our creation and invite new partners to support our efforts in Togo and our regional advocacy for greater transparency in West Africa.
