Key highlights from the NDC

- With an estimated 69% of rural households living below the poverty line, adaptation and development remain key priorities under Togo’s NDC, with targets including 100% rural electrification by 2030.
- The adaptation component also provides information on the progress made since the first NDC, and includes new activities and measures. The updated NDC also aligns with the Sustainable Development Goals.
