Poor Air Quality affects locations all across the world. See the Air Quality Index for any city to find current pollution levels and also the World Health Organisation database for ambient (outdoor) air pollution monitoring from almost 1600 cities in 91 countries.
Common causes, though they vary in different places, include vehicles, aviation, construction and even domestic boilers. Many of these are sans frontier meaning that co-operation, innovation and regulation has to be at Global, Country (or EU) level.
