Kpomassè is a town, arrondissement, and commune in the Atlantique Department of southern Benin. The commune covers an area of 305 square kilometres and as of 2002 had a population of 57,190 people.[1]

A training and production center in Kpomassè began in 1999 on the initiative of the High Commission for Refugees (HCR). The ambition of the Kpomassè center is to minimize the impact of the presence of refugees on development programs in Benin. The center encourages socio-economic integration of refugees in the country and provides the population with skills in techniques of production management in the different domains of agriculture (animal husbandry, fish farming, plant production, small-scale processing, etc.) and crafts.[2]
