SMEP - Sustainable Manufacturing and Environmental Pollution programme

UK aid from the British people

Programme Data Last Updated: 11/10/2022

IATI Identifier: GB-GOV-1-300124


The Sustainable Manufacturing and Environmental Pollution (SMEP) programme will tackle the problem of pollution generated by manufacturing and industrial activity in developing countries. Pollution linked to manufacturing and industry in developing countries is causing very high (and in some cases catastrophic) levels of environmental degradation, which are leading to long-term health problems among workers and the general population, as well as widespread contamination of vital resources, including drinking water, livestock, soils and food crops. The SMEP programme will contribute to the identification, development and application of technology-based solutions, cleaner production methods and systems that will reduce the environmental impact and pollution generated by manufacturing in developing countries, leading to long-term environmental sustainability, improved health standards and greater production efficiency.
