Environment
Environmental threats facing Comoros include deforestation, natural disasters such as floods and landslides, soil erosion, a loss of biodiversity, and annual climate change.1 Climate change in recent years has resulted in hotter temperatures and less annual rainfall, affecting the productivity of the countryâ's crops and agricultural sector.2 Traditional methods of farming in the country contribute to soil erosion, and the land grows less fertile over a period of several years, resulting in rapidly diminishing farmable land.3
