-Africa has considerable fossil fuel resources and must use them to improve energy access and increase economic growth.
-Use of cleaner fossil fuel technologies must be emphasised if greenhouse gas emissions are to be kept to a minimum.
-Tradable permits and other policy instruments could be used in Africa to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions.
