Pollution Rate & Air and Water Quality in Cameroon in 2023

Pollution and air quality are important factors that can affect quality of life. Cameroon has relatively good air quality and low pollution levels compared to global standards.
According to metrics from trusted sources, the levels of pollutants like particulate matter, nitrogen dioxide and ozone rank Cameroon 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 Cameroon are better than many developing nations and in line with most developed countries. This contributes to general wellbeing for citizens.
