2.SECRETARIAT D'ETAT CHARGE DE....
3.la production PROPRE au X
4.ASSAINISSEMENT LIQUIDE : défaillance dans les réseaux et absence de stations d'épuration,et ASSAINISSEMENT DES DECHETS SOLIDES INDUSTRIELS : défaillance dans la .....
5....ne représente que 0,1% de L’ENVELOPPE GLOBALE relative aux mesures d’accompagnement pour la mise à niveau de l’entreprise.

The context is a report about a country's economy with particular reference to environmental contamination. The text was produced by the governemnt in question. The doubts are in CAPITALS. In nos 1 & 2, I'm looking for the correct equivalent not a literal translation. No 3 appears in a short sentence thus I'm not sure how to translate 'propre' (not 'own', maybe it has the idea of 'native industry'?). In no.4 , amybe it simply 'treatment'? In no. 5 can 'enveloppe' have the broad meaning of 'restriction' and if so how could I render this phrase?

Thanks in advance to any contributors.

Explanation:
1. Partnership: For example, compare the following two sites for information:

"Information sur le partenariat"
http://www.hrdc-drhc.gc.ca/common/partnrx.shtml
"Partnership Information"
http://www.hrdc.gc.ca/common/partnr.shtml

2. State secretary with responsibility for... : for example, compare the following two sites:

"Secrétariat d'état chargé du commerce extérieur,
Secrétariat d'Etat chargé de l'industrie"
http://www.acoa-apeca.gc.ca/french/business/spm/index.shtml

"State Secretary with responsibility for Foreign Trade,
State Secretary with responsibility for Industry"
http://www.acoa-apeca.gc.ca/english/business/spm/index.shtml

3. La production propre au X: production suited to X (suited to = propre à)

4. Liquid sanitation, industrial solid waste mamagement.

"The NEAP highlights sanitation and waste disposal as major issues. It calls for the implementation of waste management and sanitation programs as a top priority. (...) It has five components: storm drainage, liquid sanitation, solid waste management, community infrastructure upgrading and capacity-building. "

5. envelope globale: I think it means "the total budget" for something or allocated to something.
For instance, see the meaning of the sentence, which I think gives you the idea:
"ne autre période «trouble» sera celle de 1993-94, où d'importantes compressions budgétaires dans toute l'Église unie obligent à la restructuration complète de tous les ministères en français. L'envelope globale des budgets d'Aujourd'hui Credo est maintenue, mais cependant la revue se voit amputé du seul poste de rédacteur-en-chef à plein temps qui devient un demi-poste. "
