Air Quality in the Flemish Region 2014
Our figures confirm that air quality in Flanders is systematically improving, but still not enough for our health. Quite a number of guideline values of the World Health Organisation (WHO) are still far out of reach. Road traffic continues to have a major impact on air quality with high nitrogen oxide and black carbon concentrations in particular. Also substances for which no assessment framework is available but which are relevant to health, such as ultrafine particulate matter, are addressed in the report.
