Urban Air Quality in Cotonou -- Executive Summary

The note highlights the conclusions of the study on Urban Air Quality in Cotonou, carried out in 2000.

Measures envisaged to limit air quality degradation, were grouped in three categories: technical and institutional measures concerning vehicles; operational measures, to improve effectiveness in terms of pollution; and, measures allowing a decrease in travel demand, i.e., urban planning policy.
