Thematic Focus

The main thematic focus of the SEIP -II Project is:

  • on strengthening the implementation capacity of MoEFCC and downstream authorities, such as CPCB, to define and effectively enforce environmental requirements for industry, particularly in the field of waste water. The project aims to strengthen the coordination processes between environmental and economic policy by supporting dialogue processes between MoEFCC and other relevant authorities.

SEIP has focus on the following fields of intervention/outputs:

Field of Intervention – 2 [OUTPUT B]: Enabling framework on state and national level

Output objective: Policies, plans and support programs at national and state levels support the promotion of efficient environmental and climate friendly industry development.

Focus: Identify gaps and suggest new policies/plans/support programmes for application at national and state level to support the promotion of efficient environmental and climate friendly industry production.

Key activities:

  • Proposals on new measures under policies/plans/programmes for supporting in pollution reduction and resource efficiency. The may include:
    • New enforcement directives for industries (tannery)
    • Policy measures on skills development of operators of wastewater treatment plants
    • Guidelines for common effluent treatment plants
    • Guidelines for “zero liquid discharge”
  • Environmental Technology Platform – technology information and transfer on industrial wastewater.
  • Green rating and certification system for industrial areas
  • Replication, upscaling in other industrial areas


Field of Intervention – 3 [OUTPUT C]: Knowledge management and dissemination

Output objective: Knowledge-base and human capacities are strengthened on good management practices and best available technologies for an efficient, and environment and climate friendly industry development.

Focus: To identify and compile relevant practical knowledge, and systematically manage it for sharing with others. To strengthen knowledge-base and human as well as organisational capacities.

Key activities:

  • Skills development for technicians of wastewater treatment plants
  • Success stories documentation
  • Documentation – case examples, publications, factsheets,
  • Dissemination - web site/web pages, conferences, workshops etc.
