    Abstract: This study considered the dynamic relationship between urbanization and CO2 emission on longevity in West African countries. The importance of urbanization to developing countries cannot be overemphasized; but it comes with a cost (CO2 emission). Hence the need to observe the effect of CO2 emission on longevity becomes necessary. This study incorpo... Show More
