Hybrid Conference on Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) Practices in Horticultural Processing Sector

The HORTI-GREEN project, entitled Inclusive Green Horticultural Processing Sector in Kenya, is an action implemented by Fundación SUSTALDE, University of Nairobi (UoN), Consumer Information Network (CIN), and Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS). In the framework of the project, the organizing and scientific committee organized a hybrid conference held in Nairobi in Kenya during the week of  June 15-16, 2022 on Sustainable Production and Consumption. The aim of this conference was to foster interaction and provide a knowledge/innovation-sharing platform for research outputs arising from the project and other similar activities that are currently being promoted with an emphasis on the horticultural processing sector.

The project team held a conference where oral presentations were made and translated into publishable peer-reviewed manuscripts. The project team partnered with the East African Journal of Science, Technology, and Innovation (EAJSTI) for a publication of a special issue of the journal focusing on the conference theme, “Promoting Sustainable Production and Consumption Practices while seizing green economy opportunities in Horticultural Processing’’. The thematic areas included green financing opportunities, sustainable energy management, waste handling and management, sustainable consumption patterns, water management and conservation, certification and current innovations in SCP.

“The HORTI-GREEN project is co-financed by the European Union. This publication has been produced with the financial assistance of the European Union. Its contents are the sole responsibility of the authors and can under no circumstances be regarded as reflecting the position of the European Union”.
