Supplement on success stories on e-waste management
This Supplement sheds light on e-waste management success stories in different countries. The Supplement covers different policies, legislation, initiatives, and different stakeholders' involvement (government, private sector, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and informal sector).
It has been developed in response to WTSA Resolution 79 (Dubai, 2012), which instructed ITU-T Study Group 5 to develop and document examples of success stories in countries and regions in handling and managing e-waste generated from telecommunications and ICT equipment. It is complementary to the Supplement guidelines for developing a sustainable e-waste management system, currently being discussed by Q13/5. However, the guidelines introduced in this Supplement apply to all categories of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEE). The Supplement presents some countries' and regions' success stories of e-waste management that could be used as best practice guidance. They may be adopted by countries or regions working on developing adequate e-waste management systems to improve their processes and procedures. Finally, the Supplement strongly encourages ITU membership to adopt ITU-T standards and internationally recognized indicators.
