Air Quality Monitoring in Nigeria

Share: aqicn.org/country/nigeria/

There is a good reason to worry about the Air Quality in Nigerai, as it ranks 152th (out of 180 countries) at the Environmental Performance Index for Air Quality.

Furthermore, according to the most recent World Health Organization air pollution database 2016 the air quality in several cities in Nigeria reaches PM2.5 concentrations from unhealthy to hazardous levels:

Public Air Quality Information availability

Unfortunately, there is not any kind of information available from the Federal Ministry of the Environment (www.environment.gov.ng) about Air Quality, whether it relates to a possible monitoring network, or to the actual values recorded by this monitoring network. To our current knowledge, there should most likely not be any kind of automated monitoring network avaiable.

There is unfortunatley, not any information either from the Abuja Environmental Protection Board.

Want your own air quality monitoring station?

The GAIA air quality monitoring stations are using high-tech laser particle sensors to measure in real-time PM2.5 pollution, which is one of the most harmful air pollutants.

Very easy to set up, they only require a WIFI access point and a USB power supply. Once connected, air pollution levels are reported instantaneously and in real-time on our maps

About the Air Quality and Pollution Measurement:

About the Air Quality Levels

AQIAir Pollution LevelHealth ImplicationsCautionary Statement (for PM2.5)
0 - 50 Good Air quality is considered satisfactory, and air pollution poses little or no risk None
51 -100 Moderate Air quality is acceptable; however, for some pollutants there may be a moderate health concern for a very small number of people who are unusually sensitive to air pollution. Active children and adults, and people with respiratory disease, such as asthma, should limit prolonged outdoor exertion.
101-150 Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups Members of sensitive groups may experience health effects. The general public is not likely to be affected. Active children and adults, and people with respiratory disease, such as asthma, should limit prolonged outdoor exertion.
151-200 Unhealthy Everyone may begin to experience health effects; members of sensitive groups may experience more serious health effects Active children and adults, and people with respiratory disease, such as asthma, should avoid prolonged outdoor exertion; everyone else, especially children, should limit prolonged outdoor exertion
201-300 Very Unhealthy Health warnings of emergency conditions. The entire population is more likely to be affected. Active children and adults, and people with respiratory disease, such as asthma, should avoid all outdoor exertion; everyone else, especially children, should limit outdoor exertion.
300+ Hazardous Health alert: everyone may experience more serious health effects Everyone should avoid all outdoor exertion
