What data is expected?

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.

its seem Air Quality is been Measured but the data not fond in a Government Website

link to a Report Improvement of Legislation on Assessment and Management of Ambient Air from the Report 2.1. OVERVIEW OF AIR POLLUTANTS RELEVANT TO AZERBAIJAN Monitoring of pollution of ambient air in Azerbaijan is conducted by the Department of National Environmental Monitoring in accordance with the statute “On the rules of implementation of state monitoring of the environment and natural resources” prepared by the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources, and approved by the resolution No.90 of the Cabinet of Ministers of the Republic of Azerbaijan dated 1 July, 2004. There are 3 categories of observation and control stations in order to determine concentration of sulphur dioxide, carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, dust, phenol, and other noxious substances. Observations on the pollution of ambient air are carried out at stationary and mobile stations. Stationary and mobile stations are supposed to be established by taking into account the area, landscape, industrial development, mobile pollution sources, and number of population of each city (settlement) as follows:  50 000 inhabitants - 1 monitoring station;  50 000-100 000 inhabitants - 2 monitoring stations;  200 000-500 000 inhabitants - 2-3 monitoring stations, etc. Monitoring and observation of pollution of ambient air is regularly conducted at 26 observation stations located in eight big industrial cities of the Republic of Azerbaijan (Baku, Sumgayit, Nakhchivan, Ganja, Mingachevir, Shirvan, Lankaran, Sheki),covering basic polluting ingredients (dust, sulphur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide and carbon monoxide), and specific harmful substances corresponding to the industrial profile of each city. The number of stations is compliant with the above-mentioned criteria, except for Baku city, where there are fewer stations than it would be necessary
