Uganda is one of the most polluted areas not only in Africa but in the world. Death from air pollution has slowly been on the rise over the past few years and is only increasing as time goes on. In 2016, the mortality rate for air pollution is 155.7 for every 100,000, nearly doubling since 2012, and has only increased since then. According to the WHO safety standards regarding air pollution, Uganda is seven times past that.
Every year, around 28,000 people die from air pollution alone in Uganda. This is a problem that sees no solution in the near future. They also suffer from waterway problems from waste that leaks into their rivers and oceans. This is just one of many countries in Africa that suffers from unsolvable pollution problems (ATC Mask).
