The capital city Kathmandu of Nepal is one of the examples where pollution level is much higher than the national standard and the WHO standard. The reasons for the worsening air quality are multiple in Nepal; vehicles, brick kilns, trash burning, forest fire, houses are to name a few. The sources of air pollution are both point and non-point sources and mobile and stationary sources.
