Environment
Deforestation is a major problem in Togo, and between 1990 and 1995, Togo lost over 7% of its forests.1 Water pollution is also a significant problem, contributing to increased rates of waterborne diseases such as diarrhea and cholera.2 Togo's economy is heavily dependent on agriculture, and climate change will adversely affect the country's agricultural productivity. Estimates suggest that future climate change will cost Togo between 2.84% and 6% of its GDP.3
