Project Description

Promotion of environmental compliance assistance efforts in enterprises in the Nairobi River Basin is an initiative of the National Environmental Management Authority (NEMA) in collaboration with Kenya National Cleaner Production Centre (KNCPC) for industries within the Nairobi River basin. It aims to address the industrial pollution challenges in relation to consumption of resources in their processes and promote resource efficiency. Increase competitiveness of the industries by promoting waste reduction and resource optimization water and energy utilization through the application of CP technologies and techniques.

Project objectives

The general objective is to strengthen compliance assistance efforts in enterprises in the Nairobi River Basin through the promotion and implementation of Resource Efficient & Cleaner Production.

Specific objectives

  1. Generate baselines for pollution intensities from industries
  2. Develop informational materials on applicable regulations and RECP industry sector guides.
  3. Conduct industry training on environmental regulations and policies relevant to the target sectors;
  4. Conduct industry training on applicable Resource Efficient and Cleaner Production solutions
  5. Conduct in-plant assessments and recommend improvement measures for compliance and beyond-compliance
  6. Develop a monitoring and evaluation system to successfully measure the results/outcomes of compliance assistance activities and resources;

Achievements

  1. 28 industries Geo-mapped within the Nairobi River Basin that have a direct or indirect pollution impact on the basin
  2. Sampling of wastewater effluents and analysis of COD, BOD, Total Nitrates and Total Phosphates for the mapped industries
  3. 35 participants drawn from the industry and regulatory bodies trained as trainers (ToTs) on RECP.
