Scope note: Criteria that vary according to the approach taken to balance health risks, technical feasibility, economic considerations and various other political and social factors, which in turn depend, among other things, on the level of development and the State's capacity to manage air quality. The WHO-recommended guidelines take this heterogeneity into account and, in particular, recognize that, when formulating air quality policies, governments should carefully consider their local circumstances before adopting proposed values as national standards. WHO also advocates that the standard-setting process aims to achieve the lowest possible concentrations in the context of local constraints, technical capacity and public health priorities.
