On July 6, 2005, the Chinese Government and the Government of Togo signed an exchange of letters for the provision of free chemical fertilizers by China to Togo (see '中国对外开放30周年回顾展'). The amount of chemical fertilizer donated was 1,640 tons. On March 16, 2006, the certificate of delivery was signed. The fertilizers were expected to increase food production and ensure food security in Togo (see '援外化肥对外移交'). The value of the fertilizer donation was estimated to be roughly 400 million West African CFA francs (pg.20 of 'Republic of Togo Basic Agricultural Public Expenditure Diagnostic Review'). The fertilizer was to be distributed to regional and district capitals so all farmers could have access it. The fertilizer was to be placed at the disposal of farmers. The fertilizer was not available free of charges for farmers; they would have to pay a subsidized price to use it (see 'China donates 1,640 tonnes of fertilizer to Togo').
'Year uncertain' box was checked because it is not confirmed this donation was agreed to in 2005. It seems China had a yearly donation of fertilizer to Togo, but it is unclear if these donations were agreed to individually each year, or originate from one agreement committed previously for yearly donations. See project ID#73588 for the 3 million RMB of fertilizer donated in 2002.See project ID#73587 for the 3 million RMB of fertilizer donated in 2003.See project ID#73099 for the 1,820 tons of fertilizer donated in 2004.
