Review of Urban Air Quality in Sub-Saharan Africa Region- Air Quality Profile of SSA Countries

Dieter Schwela

29 octobre 2022

This report compiles the information provided by the 25countries in a harmonised way and gives an in-depth review of AQ in SSA with AQ profile of each country, presenting the country’s main current urban AQ issues, emissions standards, ongoing projects, lessons learned from good/bad practices. It was attempted to compile this information also for additional SSA countries from available publications and internet sources.

Candidate countries for this effort are Malawi, South Africa, Sudan, and Zambia for which either fact sheets exist within the APINA network or a country report was available at the BAQ 2004 workshop (APINA 2003 ; BAQ 2004). For time constraints it was only possible to update the APINA fact sheet for Malawi and Zambia and include this country in section 3.
