Aggregate data about the emission of air pollutants especially those potentially harmful to human health (although it is not a requirement to include information on greenhouse gas emissions). Aggregate means national-level or available for at least three major cities. In order to satisfy the minimum requirements for this category, data must be available for the following pollutants and meet the following minimum criteria:

  • Particulate matter (PM) Levels
  • Sulphur oxides (SOx)
  • Nitrogen oxides (NOx)
  • Volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
  • Carbon monoxide (CO)
  • Updated on at least once a week.
  • Measured either at a national level by regions or at leasts in 3 big cities.

Data Location


This page provides information on the air quality for today and the next 2 days. Nothing more, no historical data and only to one index and that's atmospheric particulate matter (PM10).

Final reviewer: this indicator has been judged on the basis of the webpage provided. Thus, the data seems to exist albeit at a very general level. It is unclear how it is gathered and managed nor what criteria need to be satisfied for the data to be provided. Yet, from the static page, it come outs that this very general information is provided on a timely basis (for a review done on 28 November, the latest data was for 27 Nov).
