Regional Conference on Better Air Quality in Sub-Saharan African Cities Nairobi, Kenya, 25-28 July 2006

Untitled Document
With one of the highest rates of urbanization worldwide, air quality in cities in sub-Saharan Africa is rapidly degenerating. Finding and implementing solutions early on is a cost-effective approach to minimizing the effects of poor air quality on human health. This was the focus of the regional conference on Better Air Quality in Sub-Saharan African Cities that was attended by over two hundred participants from government, private sector, non-governmental organization, academia, and international organizations. The conference was held in three parts - training, policy, and ministerial sessions - that identified the challenges to better air quality in the subregion and recommended actions towards addressing these challenges.
