Costs and benefits of soot-free road transport in Nigeria

This study provides information to policymakers in Nigeria to support a transition to soot-free road transport and maximize its net societal benefits. The transition is important because the health burden from air pollution in Nigeria is significant and growing. Also, as the largest vehicle market of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), Nigeria’s actions will have substantial influence on the ECOWAS region’s aggregate progress toward updated and harmonized standards for cleaner fuels and vehicles.
