Sustainable Manufacturing and Environmental Pollution Programme


The SMEP baseline research conducted between 2020 and 2021, identifies and maps manufacturing activity in the SMEP target geographies, and identifies the types of pollution associated with key manufacturing industries and the impact of this pollution on the environment and human health.  This work was followed by more targeted research that was designed to gain a better understanding of localised and / or sector specific needs for SMEP funded interventions.

To access these reports, kindly refer to our Resources page or simply scroll down to the bottom of this page.

Grounded in this research, SMEP identified the following key areas in need of intervention:
  • Piloting business models for pollution mitigation technologies to address pollution in Kenya [Contracting of projects almost complete.]
  • Used Lead Acid Batteries [One project funded.]
  • Textiles and Apparel sector [In final phases of selecting grantees for delivery.]
  • Tanneries and Leather sector [Call for solutions currently open.]
