Agricultural Challenges Breed Hunger

The economy of Togo heavily relies on commercial and subsistence agriculture. Socio-political and economic turmoil, together with devastating floods, have deteriorated the country’s food security. Nearly 1.3 million (22 percent of the population) require humanitarian assistance and over 280,000 people are at risk of falling into hunger.
