While Africa's least developed countries' emissions of greenhouse gases are relatively small, inattention to the mitigation agenda would mean that developing countries both miss potential funding opportunities and fail to 'climate-proof' their development strategies.

There is little work focusing explicitly, and simultaneously, upon climate change mitigation and co-impacts has been carried out in Africa's least developed countries. The specific cases investigated were: the indoor air quality improvements arising from deployment of improved cookstoves; the outdoor air quality improvements following from use of carbon-free electricity; and the job creation consequences resulting from increased industrial energy efficiency. Climate change and air quality research communities should integrate their findings to support for a development-consistent climate policy.
