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


No available data from the Environment Management Bureau has a section for managing air quality: In Philippines there is a Clean Air Act (from 1999). As part of the implementation of this legislation air monitoring stations are being implemented. Regularly National Air Quality Reports are generated. The last one available on the website covers 2010 and 2011 though. It is in PDF format. Data visualizations regarding the different pollutants are contained in the report. No microdata or real time data is available on the website.
