I consider important to keep the geportal link as well, as it can be difficult for a person that's not familiar with the data to quickly find what they need.

There are two different data sources in this case. The data is not the same, though (if you search the same city in the two platforms, the results are different). INPE is the National Institute for Spatial Research, associated to the brazilian Ministry of Science, Technology, Innovation and Communications. INMET is the National Institute for Meteorology, associated to the brazilian Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply.

Both links provide the same kind of information, but due to measurement differences, they are not exactly the same. None of them offers files to download.

To make informational use, the platform displays data quite easily. But if you want to do anything more complex than that it is not possible because the data is not downloadable.

This year survey doesn't demand information on historical data but only forecasts. For historical data, it is possible to retrieve information per measurement station, hourly, through the link http://www.inmet.gov.br/sonabra/pg_dspDadosCodigo_sim.php?QTUxMw== Time series are provided in this link: http://www.inmet.gov.br/portal/index.php?r=estacoes/estacoesConvencionais There is also a database that requires login and password to access it, but it is for free. You only have to register. It is called BDMEP (Banco de dados meteorológicos para ensino e pesquisa - Meteorological Database for Education and Research). The link is http://www.inmet.gov.br/portal/index.php?r=bdmep/bdmep

As I said before, there are many different sources of pollutant emissions data in Brazil, but any of them seems to comply with the methodology of the open data index. I would just like to point out some of the information I could get apart from what I focused during the process of filling the survey. 1) All information of the MMA can be obtained through this link: http://www.mma.gov.br/cidades-sustentaveis/qualidade-do-ar 2) In August 2016, the MMA complied with the creation of a transparency platform for pollutant emissions data, but it is not yet available. http://www.brasil.gov.br/meio-ambiente/2016/08/sistema-nacional-traz-transparencia-aos-dados-de-emissao-de-poluentes 3) Data on pollutant emissions by vehicles since 1980 until 2012 is also published in pdf format by the MMA: http://www.mma.gov.br/images/arquivo/80060/Inventario_de_Emissoes_por_Veiculos_Rodoviarios_2013.pdf 4) INPE produces the map (http://meioambiente.cptec.inpe.br/index.php?lang=pt) but also information on the Amazon region downloadable in .xls format (http://inpe-em.ccst.inpe.br/), which is also available in the brazilian open data portal (http://dados.gov.br/dataset/inpe-em/resource/6ec5237b-dc27-4489-8ad2-17ff7548dbf6) 5) IBGE used to have periodic research on emissions, but it seems to be outdated for most of the metropolitan regions (http://seriesestatisticas.ibge.gov.br/series.aspx?vcodigo=IU5&t=concentracao-poluentes-ar-areas-urbanas-1) 6) This kind of data has better quality in the subnational level. I put here two examples I found, which is from the Federal District (http://www.ibram.df.gov.br/informacoes/meio-ambiente/qualidade-do-ar.html) and from the State of São Paulo (http://sistemasinter.cetesb.sp.gov.br/Ar/php/boletim_por_poluente.php). There should be a kind of aggregation of subnational level data.

Brazil has a great portal for looking up municipal information in one place however the water quality reports are just for total coliforms not for all parameters.

There are some datasets available (a href="http://certificacao.incra.gov.br/Certifica/certREPR_HISTORICO_IMOVELsrch.asp">data about rural land ownership, aggregate data, montlhy national report with aggregated data).
