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)

add by yaron its seem the data for air pollution is for in 3 city is give by the local city Bogota- cail- medellin- It seems that all air pollutants are measured except VOC
