Pollution Rate & Air and Water Quality in Burkina Faso in 2023
Pollution and air quality are important factors that can affect quality of life. Burkina Faso has relatively good air quality and low pollution levels compared to global standards.
According to metrics from authorities, the levels of pollutants like particulate matter, nitrogen dioxide and ozone rank Burkina Faso among the top countries worldwide for air quality.
Major cities do suffer from traffic congestion and industrial activity leading to smog and reduced air quality at times, however pollution-control regulations help minimize risks. The government has initiatives to promote public transit, clean energy and high vehicle emissions standards to reduce pollution.
Access to nature and green spaces in urban areas also counteracts some effects of pollution. While not pristine, the air quality and pollution levels in Burkina Faso are better than many developing nations and in line with most developed countries. This contributes to general wellbeing for citizens.
