Medellín, a city of 2.5 million in the Aburrá Valley of Colombia, is taking targeted action to improve its air quality, with a particular focus on transport emissions, under a comprehensive plan of action covering the Aburrá Valley, PIGECA - Plan Integral de Gestión de la Calidad del Aire.

Improving air quality is one of the City of Medellín's priorities, which is why we are taking the lead in the Aburrá Valley to improve air pollution monitoring and curb traffic pollution, all of which tie in with our climate and urban regeneration plans."
