A memorandum of understanding (MOU) between Togo and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) has been signed in order to work together to construct the “African Centre for Coordination and Research in Cybersecurity” in Lomé, the nation’s capital.

The center will promote cybersecurity in the area, assist African nations in carrying out the Lomé Declaration, and independently and impartially lend its expertise to the investigation of cybercrime.

Member nations make a commitment in the Lomé Declaration to enact the Malabo Convention and work together to combat cybercrime. The Malabo Convention promotes the creation of a uniform, independent, and robust legal framework to protect the privacy and data of all African nations.

The center will help establish cybersecurity organizations in African nations and increase cybersecurity capacity.

Additionally, it will cooperate with governments, politicians, law enforcement, and security specialists across Africa to develop efficient systems for identifying and handling cyberthreats and promoting cybersecurity in the region.

Additionally, the center will provide highly specialized equipment and research capabilities to support cybersecurity in Africa.
