Togo joined the Coalition to integrate short-lived climate pollutant (SLCP) mitigation measures into its environmental strategy and increase awareness about the role SLCP mitigation in controlling climate change. Represented by the Ministry of Environment, Sustainable Development and Nature Protection, Togo initially expressed strong interest in activities in the agriculture, energy, industry, land management and waste sectors.

This interest has since been translated into action. In 2019, the National Plan for the Reduction of Air and Short-Lived Climate Pollutants was adopted, formalizing commitments to significantly reducing black carbon, methane, fine particulate matter, and nitrogen oxides by 2040. Reducing SLCPs in the household energy sector remains a top priority, aiming to significantly increase access to improved cookstoves and to progressively introduce energy efficiency in the consumption of wood and charcoal.
