|Title:||Towards establishing air quality guidelines for Pakistan|
|Abstract:||While enforceable National Environmental Quality Standards for pollutants exist in Pakistan, ambient air quality guidelines have never been established. However, there is no reliable epidemiological/ toxicological monitoring system in place in Pakistan to provide a basis for establishing guidelines for various air pollutants.

Based on these, and available data on the existing air pollution situation in Pakistan, national air quality guidelines are proposed for 6 major pollutants|
