Short summary
It is our responsibility to establish a link between emissions, air pollution, and health impacts for urban combustion sources, typical of Africa. Our results show that the particulate concentrations observed at all sites far exceed the recommendations of WHO. The site influenced by domestic fires is the most polluted site, dominated by a significant fraction of ultrafine particles. These studies will eventually lead to the implementation of emission reduction solutions to improve air quality.
