According to bank documents, the project objective is to reduce air and climate pollutants from critical sectors in Greater Cairo. The project aims more specifically at reducing air emissions which is a key step toward the reduction of pollution concentrations and improvement of air quality. Air pollutants include PM10 and PM2.5, while climate pollutants known as Short-lived climate pollutants (SLCP) include CO2 or “black carbon” from vehicle emissions.
