Summary: The Norwegian Institute for Air Research (NILU) has developed the air quality monitoring and management programme for Dakar, Senegal. Part of this project involves the development of templates for reporting of the air quality based on measurements of air pollution and meteorology. This example of reporting procedures is strictly limited to the reporting of measurement results. Templates are presented for: ¿ Daily and weekly reports ¿ Monthly data reports ¿ Quarterly assessment reports ¿ Annual ¿State of the environment¿ report. The templates indicate typical content with different examples of presentations, air quality statistics and figures and tables prepared in order to assess the air quality in Dakar. Similar procedures are being used by different authorities worldwide.
