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.

The report from 2013 may be their latest report, because I could not find one from 2014. Nevertheless, I felt it was important to note that it was not from 2014.

According to the description, the report was created 2013-02-01, but it also says that the latest update was in December 2012. Not to mention, it should be an annual update (every December to be exact) according to the description, which means an update from December 2013 should exist. There is no update from December 2013 to be found.
