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

This small, sub-Saharan economy depends heavily on both commercial and subsistence agriculture, which provides employment for a significant share of the labor force. Some basic foodstuffs must still be imported. Cocoa, coffee, and cotton generate about 40% of export earnings with cotton being the most important cash crop. Togo is among the world's largest producers of phosphate and Togo seeks to develop its carbonate phosphate reserves.
