Our Taskforce: Capacity Building


Our mission is to increase public, scientific and business awareness regarding the global e-waste problem. We want to achieve this by offering open access to the knowledge and experiences gained in the activities of the Task Forces 1 - 4 as well as of related and welcomed initiatives in global e-waste management and by actively engaging in training and capacity development.
