Togo is a small, West African country of 7.1 million people. Its economy is heavily dependent on commercial and subsistence agriculture, which provides employment for 65% of the country's labor force. Unfortunately, such heavy cultivation has created environmental issues including deforestation due to slash-and-burn agriculture, the use of wood for fuel, and water pollution. With per capita income of US$437 (2009) and a human development index (HDI) of 159 out of 182 countries, Togo's growth performance has been among the weakest in Sub-Saharan Africa. Currently, over 62% of the total population live in poverty. Due to ongoing political unrest, a military coup d'état, and contested Presidential elections, Togo’s transition to a stable democracy has stalled since 2005. Despite notable influences of Christianity (29%) and Islam (21%), Togo's predominant religious beliefs are indigenous, animistic practices (51%).
