Support of a sustainable e-waste management system in Ethiopia

The Step Inititiative - Always stay informed

Recognising the growth of the ICT sector in Ethiopia, the Ethiopian government and international partners collaborated to develop an e-waste management strategy for the country. Through this StEP pilot project, Ethiopia will be better prepared to effectively handle the increase in e-waste volume that it is expected to face in the near future.

This project, which is funded under the Global Environmental Facility (GEF) Trust Fund, builds on existing initiatives in Ethiopia and consolidates the recently-established multi-stakeholder partnership–known as the Ethiopian E-waste Management Working Group–in order to develop necessary policies and legislation to successfully implement an e-waste management strategy in Ethiopia.
