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.
