Forum Focuses on Reducing E-Waste

Forum agrees on a set of priority actions for reducing the environmental and health impacts of levels of e-waste

Representatives from 18 African states, the United Nations, NGOs, the private sector and academia, have agreed on a set of priority actions for reducing the environmental and health impacts of growing levels of e-waste in Africa.

The actions were agreed at the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) on the final day of the Pan-African Forum on E-Waste and included promoting the sector's potential for green jobs and economic development, in Nairobi, Kenya.

The forum focused on long-term solutions to the rising levels of obsolete mobile phones, refrigerators, televisions and other e-products in Africa.
