Togo's rural population suffered the most from floods and sharp increases in food prices that hit the country in 2007 and 2008.

It drowns and rots the crops, kills livestock, causes rivers to overflow, causes landslides (that then destroy homes and communities), and increases the risk of diseases like malaria, dysentery and dengue fever.
