Agriculture is a labour intensive industry generally. This is extremely relevant for Togo as 51% of all households are involved in agricultural related activities.
Most farming households are located in Plateaux (34%) and Maritime respectively. As expected, the farming households are spread across the traditionally rural regions.
In order to improve the lives of these smallholder farmers, it is important to understand their vulnerabilities. At household level, a combined 38% of these household often or sometimes skip a meal because they did not have food – making a strong case for why there needs to be interventions in order to better their lives.
