Basic Training Module for Chemical Management in Textile Wet Processes

Basic Training Module for Chemical Management in Textile Wet Processes
Training

The Basic Training Module for Chemical Management is a one-day training aimed at decision makers and the middle management who are responsible for production in textile factories containing wet processing units. The target of the training is to create awareness and promote basic knowledge about sound chemical management in textile supply chains, with a focus on the wet processes. It, thereby, should also be seen as a preparation for potential more advanced follow-up trainings. Because of this introducing character, the training might be also of interest to employees from brands who are responsible for compliance, quality assurance, or purchase.

The training is structured in a modular fashion, consisting of six modules covering all relevant aspects of the textile environmental and chemical management. Depending of the context and specific needs, it is, therefore, possible to exclude certain modules from the training. While the total time of the training should not exceed one day, a broader impact can be achieved by targeting important multiplier and first-tier producers.

The trainings are held in a classroom format and also include practical examples and exercise to engage the participants. Covered topics are chemical management systems, international compliance frameworks, occupational safety, and also wastewater and sludge treatment. Excluded are the subjects of gaseous emissions, treatment of solid waste and climate change.

Enhancing the Quality of Industrial Policies (EQuIP)

Enhancing the Quality of Industrial Policies (EQuIP)
Tool

The EQuIP toolbox contains simple and intuitive analytical tools, based on a set of indicators, which can help policymakers in lower income countries to address important strategic questions, such as how to:

  • move from an agrarian to an industrial economy
  • diversify the economy
  • create more jobs in industry
  • upgrade industry
  • promote the greening of industry
  • reduce poverty through industry

With the fundamental objective of capacity development, this toolbox has been operationalized through the development of training manuals, course materials on the different methodologies and an online platform which provides free global access to the toolbox.

This capacity development package was tested in two regional training events for low and lower-middle income countries in early 2015. These practitioner workshops reached out to the key stakeholders in the industrial policy process in developing countries, including government departments in charge of industrial strategy design and private sector institutions.

Ultimately, the EQuIP diagnostic toolbox, together with the accompanying training and capacity building package, aims to support industrial policy practitioners to undertake a thorough industrial diagnosis and to design evidence-based strategies for inclusive and sustainable industrial development.

EQuIP is an institutional capacity-building package to train public servants and analysts for public policy to be based on informed decisions and a critical examination of empirical evidence. This capacity development package builds on an integrated EQuIP toolbox which compiles globally available industrial performance and capability measurement approaches as well as a number of tailor-made new methodologies for industrial diagnosis that also take the social and environmental dimensions of indusrial development into account. At the same time the toolbox supports policy makers to design context-appropriate industrial policy packages and to analyze different options for institutional setups which relate to specific country and political economy contexts.

The different tools of the toolbox cover topics such as industrial growth, sub-sectoral competitive performance, diversification, productive employment generation, and greening of industry. With that, the EQuIP toolbox offers stakeholders a range of methodologies to consider for industrial diagnosis and strategy design in their countries, acknowledging that the most appropriate approaches and tools vary according to country characteristics.

Main features and components

A set of nine diagnostic tools on various issues related to inclusive and sustainable industrial development has ben developed and compiled. Each of these nine tools broadly relates to one of the three pillars of inclusive and sustainable industrial development (industrial competitiveness and economic performance, social inclusiveness, and environmental sustainability) and its "drivers".

Tool 1 Industrial capacity and growth domestic and export dimensions

Tool 2 Sub-sector competitive performance

Tool 3 Industrial and Export Upgrading

Tool 4 Diversification domestic and export dimensions

Tool 5 Industrial Employment and Poverty Alleviation

Tool 6 Greening Industry (Energy Efficiency Module and Material Efficiency Module)

Tool 7 Global Value Chains

Tool 8 Industrial Organisation and Frm Profiling at Sub-sector Level

Tool 9 Industrial capabilities indicators

The Industrial Policy Design Document outlines ten common industrial policy objectives which span across social, economic and environmental dimensions of development and contains a classification device if different types of policy instruments that countries can consider as options when designing their industrial policy packages. It presents a structures method for independently assessing and combining instruments into coherent packages that logically connect the prioritized objectives. The Annexes 1 and 2 of the Industrial Policy Design Document contains a long list of over 300 industrial policy instruments for further consideration.

The EQuIP Institutional Set up Manual focuses on the creation of institutional structures and proposes a three phase institutional setup methodology - first, analysis of state-society relations, second, analysis of institutional setup dimensions and, third, monitoring, evaluation and adaption.

Implementation / work steps

Each tool starts on page 1 with a table that provides some quick facts and an overview of the objectives of the tool, the indicators used and the key (analystical) questions addressed. This is followed by an introductory section which introduces the topic and provides a rationale why the topic is relevant for inclusive and sustainable industrial development more generally and the EQuIP project more narrowly.

Next comes a section that describes the methodolgy, i.e. the analytical process and the different analystical steps. I outlines which indicators are used and how they are calculated and it also includes some suggestions where relevant data can be found.

The third section then applies the methodology for an empirical example (i.e. a case study) in order to illustrate what kind of analyses can be undertaken with the methods presented in the previous section.

The fourth section is dedicated tot he discussion of possible extensions of the tool.

The following section discusses how the tool in question links to other tools in the toolbox or, more precisely, how the topic presented in the tool links to other subjects in the area of inclusive and sustainable industrial development.

Each tool concludes with listings of possible data sources for the analyses and, finally, of references and further readings.

Sustainability Calculator for Industrial Areas

Sustainability Calculator for Industrial Areas
Tool

The Sustainability Calculator for Industrial Areas has been designed to guide the decision making of developers and managers of Industrial Areas (IA), who want to improve environmental and social impacts of their IA, increase their competitiveness in international markets and attract new investors and clients by integrating profitable voluntary measures into the design and management of their IA. The results generated by this tool allow estimating the potential economic benefits of voluntary investments into improving the sustainability of a IA. Additionally, they visualize the impact of potential investments on the sustainability of an IA, generating a diagram for the user that assists in identifying voluntary measures that impact positively on the sustainability of your area while simultaneously generating profits.
The calculator offers measures that can be applied to both new and existing IAs that wish to improve their performance. The tool is embedded in a web page with further information re Sustainable Industrial Areas, Testimonials from other industrial zone developers and managers re the benefits they were able to reap by investing in specific sustainability measures, and contact information for international and local experts.

Main features and components

The Sustainability Calculator itself asks developers or managers of industrial zones to answer about 100 questions re the status quo and/or planning re a specific industrial area, all of them requiring only information readily available to developers and managers of industrial zones, such as location, size, number of companies located or to be located in your area, if the area will be focused on attracting companies from a specific sector or will be open to companies regardless of the sector they belong to, cost for core and shell construction, planned total energy consumption, distance to the nearest community, etc. All captured data is stored and processed anonymously. After finishing the questionnaire, the user can generate a pdf with his/her results for his/her own use or as initial information when contacting one of the specialists enlisted in the “contact” section of this webpage. Experts listed in the “contact” section of the webpage will be able to support the user in concretizing sustainable investment opportunities identified through the calculator. The tool is available in English and Spanish, and its use is free of cost.

Implementation / work steps

Answering all questions included in the Sustainability Calculator takes about 20-45 minutes.

Requirements

Availability of basic data re a specific industrial zone (see above).

Lessons learnt

There is a substantial number of sustainability measures which will probably generate an economic benefit for the developer/manager of industrial areas in the region. However, advanced measures (e.g. industrial symbiosis) require a level of coordination and trust between developers/managers and companies located or to be located in the industrial area that may be difficult to achieve in the region in the short and medium term.

Output

Based on data captured for Mexico and Costa Rica and the information provided by the user re the status quo of a specific industrial area, the Sustainability Calculator generates a diagram that indicates on the x-axis an estimate of the potential economic benefit of investments in specific sustainability measures, and on the y-axis an estimate of the potential impact on the sustainability of the industrial area of each of these sustainability measures. For each measure, a box that pops up when clicking on the point that visualizes the measure in the diagram, includes further information on what exactly can be done, links to websites with further information, and testimonials of developers or managers of industrial areas around the globe that have successfully invested in this specific measure.

The Ministry of Commerce and Industry (GoI), the Departments of Industries and Commerce of the then Govt. of Andhra Pradesh and APIIC along with GIZ took a decision in the year 2013 to take up the project of “Adaptation to Climate Change in Industrial Areas in India” to address the challenges of climate change with a focus on Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.

During the course of the project, both, APIIC and TSIIC may adopt a policy to make existing and upcoming industrial areas in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana State, India, more climate resilient. The aim of this guideline is to anchor the consideration of Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) in the planning process of new industrial areas, as well as in further development and refurbishment of existing ones.

© GIZ

© GIZ

Main features and components

The guideline provides orientation and develops a standard approach and methodology on how to plan for adaptation and increasing resilience of existing and upcoming industrial areas in APIIC/TSIIC.

Generally, there are two possible scenarios for CCA planning:

  1. For new IPs the preparation of a master plan is a mandatory step. In the future, CCA concerns need to be integrated comprehensively in such master plans and the related planning and decision making processes.
  2. For existing IPs, a CCA action plan needs to be prepared containing actual CCA measures. There are two sub-scenarios: (a) making an entire IP climate resilient and (b) implementing a specific measure or several measures.

Implementation / work steps

In general, the following steps need to be considered and completed:

  1. A climate risk analysis identifying the main hazards the IP is exposed to, the IPs vulnerability and the resulting risks;
  2. The identification, selection, and prioritization of CCA measures based on specific criteria of importance and cost;
  3. Funding and implementation of the identified measures;
  4. Continuous monitoring, evaluation and learning.

 

Thus, the guidelines are organised along the following chapters:

  1. Adaptation to Climate Change of Industrial Areas
  2. Climate Risk Analysis of Industrial Parks
  3. Climate Risk Impact Assessment of various Hazards
  4. Adaptation Planning & Implementation Process

Output

Industrial parks can better adapt and increase their resilience to the impacts of climate change.

Ait Melloul Industrial Zone – Case Study (Morocco)

Ait Melloul Industrial Zone – Case Study (Morocco)
Case Study

This case study was developed under the GIZ global programme “Private Sector Adaptation to Climate Change (PSACC)” which aims at building the capacities of SMEs and private sector intermediaries in the field of Climate Change Adaptation. It presents the results of the vulnerability assessment conducted with the industrial zone of Ait Melloul. The Ait Melloul industrial zone (Ait Melloul IZ) was created in 1988 in the commune of Ait Melloul a nearby locality of Agadir in the Souss- Massa region, one of the most climate vulnerable regions of Morocco with a semi-arid climate. As the adaptation strategy is still under discussion, this case will be revised in the course of the project.

© GIZ

© GIZ

Main features and components

Ait Melloul IZ was one of the first semi-equipped and semi-structured zones of the region and basic services like lighting, electricity and water supply are provided by public utilities. The zone was developed by an independent planning agency, and it is managed by the Commune in close cooperation with the association of the enterprises (ADIZIA). Today the zone faces a number of challenges which are increasing its vulnerability to climate change, as for example old equipment and infrastructures, no sectoral zoning, weak infrastructure maintenance, lack of waste management structures, weak management structures and resources.

Implementation / work steps

A vulnerability assessment aimed at building the capacities of SMEs and private sector intermediaries in the field of Climate Change Adaptation was conducted in the industrial zone of Ait Melloul in order to identify climate risks and adaptation measures for priority risks.

Identified climate risks are risks related to site and layout, infrastructures and services, enterprises, employees and communities, and market, finance and regulations such as:

  • Flooding of site leading to damages of infrastructures, buildings, and blockages of industrial activity
  • Risk of water and product contamination because of weak waste management
  • Absenteeism of employees not able to access the zone
  • Stricter regulations in the field of water, waste, and energy management

Examples of adaptation measures are:

  • Awareness campaign among companies on flood risks, the use of resilient buildings, manual on good practices and available technologies
  • Strengthening public-private dialogues on sustainable water management
  • Establishment of a monitoring and information system on environmental and climate-related regulations and public supports

Output

Adaptation measures for priority climate risks were identified.
