What data is expected?

Data about the daily mean concentration of air pollutants, especially those potentially harmful to human health. Data should be available for all air monitoring stations or air monitoring zones in a country. The Index focusses on key pollutants as defined by the World Health Organisation. See our methodology section for more information.

  • Particulate matter (PM)
  • Sulphur oxides (SOx)
  • Nitrogen oxides (NOx)
  • Carbon monoxide (CO)
  • Ozone
  • Volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
  • Available per air monitoring station/zone

How open is the data?

In Costa Rica, the national inventory of greenhouse gases is done by the National Meteorological Institute (IMN) dependency attached to MINAE: The last one published was for 2011 and are still lacking to be the product of a national monitoring system as is established by the Kyoto Protocol, and an appropriate instrument for decision-making in both the public sector as the private sector.
