2023 World Air Quality Report | IQAir


Key findings from the 2023 World Air Quality Report:

• Seven countries met the WHO annual PM2.5 guideline (annual average of 5 µg/m3 or less): Australia, Estonia, Finland, Grenada, Iceland, Mauritius, and New Zealand.

• The top five most polluted countries in 2023 were:
o Bangladesh (79.9 µg/m3 ) more than 15 times higher than the WHO PM2.5 annual guideline
o Pakistan (73.7 µg/m3 ) more than 14 times higher than the WHO PM2.5 annual guideline
o India (54.4 µg/m3 ) more than 10 times higher than the WHO PM2.5 annual guideline
o Tajikistan (49.0 µg/m3 ) more than 9 times higher than the WHO PM2.5 annual guideline
o Burkina Faso (46.6 µg/m3 ) more than 9 times higher than the WHO PM2.5 annual guideline

• A total of 124 (92.5%) out of 134 countries and regions exceeded the WHO annual PM2.5 guideline value of 5 µg/m3 .


Srbija naravno medju najgorim u Evropi... nije iznenadjenje.
Meni jeste iznenadjenje malo za Hrvatsku da su se toliko popravili za samo 1 godinu, nisam znala da ozbiljno rade na renewables (kojim?).

How bad is the air pollution in other European countries?

In the yellow category - denoting pollution levels up to three times above the safe standard - European countries included Lithuania, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Malta, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Poland, Cyprus, Slovenia and Italy.

Croatia showed the most progress in 2023 in lowering PM2.5 levels, with the annual average dropping more than 40 per cent compared to 2022. It has achieved this by increasing its use of renewables, which so far make up more than 31 per cent of the country’s energy mix - well above the EU average of 23 per cent.

Croatia has also introduced policies to phase out coal before 2033, reduce methane emissions by 30 per cent below 2020 levels by 2030, and end deforestation by 2030.

In the orange category - up to five times above safe levels - were Moldova, Romania, Albania, Greece, Turkiye, Serbia and Montenegro.


Bosnia and Herzegovina saw an 18 per cent decrease in PM2.5 levels in 2023 compared to 2022, but remains the most polluted country in the region, followed by North Macedonia - both of which fell in the red category with pollution levels over five times the safe standard.
