Providing information about air pollution and finding out its spatial distribution through monitoring network is a crucial starting point in the planning process of measures for air quality control and improvement. Hence, monitoring is an indispensable component of air quality management and its first activity.

Considering the importance of monitoring and its absence in the town of Bitola, this analysis gives an overview of the current air pollution problem and public initiative and determination for changes. Most importantly, elaborated recommendations for introduction of monitoring network in the town are presented.
