Nigeria Soot-free Bus CNG/Electric Bus Deployment Projects (US$ 240,000 – US$ 300,000)

Dec 8, 2023


Nigeria Soot-free Bus CNG/Electric Bus Deployment Projects (US$ 240,000 – US$ 300,000)

This project will also support Nigeria’s shift to low-sulfur fuels and the implementation of EURO IV vehicle standard adopted by the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) in 2020.


Reducing short-lived climate pollutant (SLCP) emissions from transportation is a priority for Nigeria. The country is currently planning its CNG/electric program and has the opportunity to adopt a strategy for deploying CNG/electric buses given the removal of the state fuel subsidy by the President in May 2023. CNG is recognized as an important transition fuel that will also provide substantial public health and climate change benefits.


This work should also support harmonization with ECOWAS vehicle standards to regulate cleaner fuels and vehicles, ongoing CCAC projects on soot-free bus technologies in the region, and proposed solutions that align with targets in Nigeria’s National SLCP Action Plan and NDC.


More information on Nigeria’s involvement in the CCAC is available on their Partner Page.
