Les Amis de la Terre Togo was founded in 1990 and became a Friends of the Earth International member group in 1992. The group has 700 members and sympathizers, and recently launched a bulletin called NONUDZO! (STAY AWAKE!). Desertification, phosphate mining, health and environment, debt and water resources are some of the group's main campaign issues at the national level.
The group also takes part in FoEI campaigns on climate change, desertification, gender, Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO), ozone, International Financial Institutions (IFIs), forestry, mining and sustainable societies. FoE Togo is a volunteer association, and holds international work camps each summer to construct schools and plant trees, among other activities. The group recently opened their center for Documentation and Information on the Environment and Sustainable Developement, part of their environmental education work.
