Promoting fairer working environments, Kenya
30th May 2012
Harassment and discrimination are hard to identify and address through traditional monitoring and auditing. The case study describes ETP’s experience of rolling out ETI’s Supervisor Management Training programme to promote equal treatment in the workplace, and reduce discrimination and abusive behaviour in Kenyan factories.
Instilling good practice: Strategic partnerships to build capacity, India
This case study outlines how ETP’s partnerships with expert organisations in India has enabled the roll-out of training on health and safety and environmental management, two key areas covered by the ETP Global Standard that many producers struggle with. It also highlights ETP’s work with the Nature Conservation Foundation aimed at resolving conflicts between workers and endangered Asian elephants on Assam tea estates.
Securing tea supply and livelihoods: Adapting to climate change, Kenya
Over the coming decades climate change will affect where and how tea is grown. In Kenya smallholders are particularly vulnerable, and for this reason, ETP and GIZ (the German Development Agency) have developed a three-year partnership to assist 50,000 farmers to adapt.
The case study outlines how climate change will affect the suitability for growing tea in various regions of Kenya, and explores how collaboration between organisations and the building of adaption capacity will increase smallholder resilience to such changes.
