Abstract: This study investigated the relationship among biomass energy consumption, economic growth and carbon emissions in West Africa during 1980–2010. This nexus was explored by integrating the pollution production function and energy demand function with an augmented endogenous growth model. Moreover, this paper employed a simultaneous equation model estimated with three stage least squares (3SLS). Analysis was conducted for individual West African countries and panel of the countries.
