E-waste Data and Statistics

Through the Global E-waste Statistics Partnership, ITU provides technical assistance to governments to monitor and measure quantities and flows of e-waste. Monitoring as such is important to assess developments over time, to set and evaluate targets, and to identify best practices in policies. Such efforts help tackle the e-waste challenge and drive policies and projects towards a sustainable society and circular economy.

Global E-waste Statistics Partnership Brief

The objectives of the partnership, comprising ITU and the Sustainable Cycles (SCYCLE) programme of UNITAR, are to monitor developments of e-waste over time, and to help countries to produce e-waste statistics. The initiative will inform policy makers, industries, academia, media and the general public by enhancing the understanding and interpretation of global e-waste data and its relation to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). 
The partnership is responsible for the publication of several leading national, regional and global monitoring reports, including The Global E-waste Monitor 2024
