AbstractThe publication “Where are WEEE in Africa” was developed in the framework of the project entitled «Building local capacity to address the flow of e-wastes and electrical and electronic products destined for re-use in selected African countries and to augment the sustainable management of resources through the recovery of materials in e-wastes». The project is funded through the generous support of the European Commission; the governments of Norway and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland; and the Dutch Recyclers Association (NVMP). The publication was prepared by the Secretariat of the Basel Convention (SBC) in cooperation with the Basel Convention Coordinating Centre for Training and Technology Transfer for the African Region (BCCC-Nigeria), the Basel Convention Regional Centre for Training and Technology Transfer for French-speaking countries in Africa (BCRC-Senegal), the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology (EMPA), the Institute for Applied Ecology (the Öko-Institut), the European Union Network for the Implementation and Enforcement of Environmental Law (IMPEL) and the governments of Benin, Côte d’Ivoire, Egypt, Ghana, Liberia, Nigeria, and Tunisia.
