Alternative Dispute Resolution


ICF worked with the Government of Togo to improve commercial justice through the strengthening of alternative dispute resolution mechanisms. The aim of the project was to increase the speed and efficiency of settlement of commercial disputes through the procedures used by the Court of Arbitration and Conciliation of Togo (CATO).

As a result of the project, 30 new arbitrator and 100 magistrates and professionals received training in mediation/arbitration techniques. Further, the new CATO procedure manual is explicit that the time between filing and judgement shall be a maximum of 6 months as per article 36 of the ruling procedures.
