Deforestation is a major problem in Togo because of slash and burn agriculture, and since 1990 Togo has lost over 40% 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 may cost Togo a significant percentage of its GDP.3
