According to wholevehicles, Togo is a small West African country located between Ghana and Benin. It has an area of approximately 57,000 square kilometers, making it one of the smallest countries in Africa. The terrain is generally flat and low-lying, reaching its highest point in the east at Mount Agou at 986 meters. The landscape is characterized by savanna plains in the north, hills and plateaus in the center, and coastal plains in the south. The country’s two main rivers are the Mono and Oti Rivers, which flow into Lake Togo and eventually drain into the Gulf of Guinea. The climate of Togo can be divided into two distinct seasons: a dry season from November to March and a wet season from April to October. Most of Togo receives between 800-1,000 millimeters of rainfall each year. Togo’s natural resources include phosphates, limestone, marble, gold, iron ore, and hydropower potential. Over 30 percent of Togo’s land is arable for agricultural production due to its fertile soils. The main crops produced are cassava, millet, maize (corn), yams, sorghum, rice, beans and groundnuts (peanuts). Livestock farming is also practiced throughout much of Togo with cattle being raised for meat production while sheep and goats are kept mainly for their wool or milk products. In addition to agricultural production fishing is an important source of livelihood along the coast with tuna being among the most important species caught by local fishermen. Other industries such as mining (phosphates) as well as timber harvesting are also important components of Togo’s economy although they have not been heavily developed due to lack of foreign investment capital or infrastructure development within the country itself.
