Libreville, Gabon
Side event of Africa Climate Week 2022

The upcoming African Union Commission, UNEP, Climate and Clean Air Coalition and Stockholm Environment Institute report, Integrated Assessment of Air Pollution and Climate Change for Sustainable Development in Africa, outlines pathways to reduce GHG emissions, short- lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) and other air pollutants while simultaneously preventing hundreds of thousands of premature deaths per year across Africa from improved air pollution and achieving regional climate benefits and progress towards the Africa-wide development goals outlined in the Africa Union’s Agenda 2063. The assessment has been developed by over 100 scientists and experts from Africa and internationally, and outlines 37 concrete, specific measures that can transition Africa to a low-emission, health-positive and resilient trajectory. This session will include presentation of the key results of the assessment for different sectors.
