The National Environmental Protection Agency (NEPA) officials said on Saturday that even as advances have been made in reducing air pollution, it remains is a concern.
The levels of air pollution in Kabul has decreased compared to last year, but further still work needed to be done to reduce the health hazard, the NEPA said.
